Work over the weekend

I spent some time on this over the passed weekend. I realized I was feeling very stuck by the piece. I had laid down an initial layer of images over almost the entire canvas and I didn't know how to proceed. I chose to work on top of and paint out some of the plaid, introduce the black at the bottom of the canvas, begin working with rose silhouettes and outlines, and painted a larger, well articulated flower in the upper right hand corner of the piece. I think it makes the composition more dynamic. The piece is still progressing, so check back to see what happens next.
