Plaster Collage page 3

Page 3
I hope you see a difference each time I post my progress. The blue sky like sponge technique is an attempt to unify the picture as a whole and to make the subject matter pop out. Looking at the photo helps me see many places that need to be developed. At first the flowers were loosely representational but I like the big purple thing in the upper right so to  heck with "real" flowers. I'm noticing that the raised plaster bubbles are floating aimlessly and they need to be tied into the scene better. More later when I figure it out. What would you do to make this a good painting?
