Out My Kitchen Window

This little 6x9 inch gouache painting on hot press watercolor paper was painted without doing a preliminary drawing.  I want to experiment with this approach and see what happens.  I didn't mean for the vase to end up in the center of the composition and can't decide if it should be cropped.  I hate cropping as I feel that a composition should be composed and not altered.  Any thoughts?

Hi The vase doesn't appear to be in the center,it looks a bit to the left. At any rate it doesn't dominate the lovely painting.
