I like this a lot. Striking in its simplicity.

Superb, the only improvement I could suggest would have been to show a tad more of the inside of the flower with the yellow peeking thru a bit more.
That's just wishing, lovely job.

I really like this. Just wondering. How did you make a portable backdrop? Or do you just drape it over something?

I buy different materials by the yard. and staple it to squares of 1/4" plywood. I have adjustable legs and can raise or lower it. the silver mylar fabric came from a local sewing and material shop. the black velvet from Walmart.
