Her Love Was Like Chainmail 16x20 painting on hardboard

The title of this painting is a reference to her dress, which looks like chainmail to me. Why would a pretty blonde girl in a garden be wearing pink chainmail? Maybe it's love.
I am a painting machine right now. I listen to music, try to stop my brain and paint. I finished this one today.
I'm so excited because the most amazing photographer that I found on flickr (besides my husband, but he does not take wildlife photos) gave me permission to use his photos as reference for a painting. They are of birds. AMAZING.
I can't wait to start on that.

Just *grand*! Where can I get a start of that one flower that looks like Japanese lanterns wearing corsets? Very, very pretty - all of it - and colorful beyond belief. (in a good way)
