When Nature Invites

This oil painting is 10"x 20" on a stretched canvas that is 1 1/2 " thick.  I learned a great deal from this painting and I hope to incorporate those learnings in the new paintings that I have planned.  My palette was a bit larger than I have used recently.  It consisted of Vermilion, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Phalo Blue, Permanent Green, Cadmium Orange, Cad Yellow Medium, Dioxazine Purple, Titanium White, Black, and Magenta.  I just decided that I needed the purest color I could get and so I incorporated more paints.  I like the results in this painting.  The format of the painting was new to me being a long rectangle....I enjoyed it.....but composition planning is of the utmost importance.
Do you have a title suggestion?  Thank Maritnealison......

Bonjour chère amie,

"Lorsque la nature s'invite..." J'aime bien ce titre pour cette belle composition florale aux couleurs très harmonieuses.
L'idée de la fenêtre ouverte avec le voilage en mouvement apporte une vie dans cette peinture.

Gros bisous 🌺
