reminds me strongly of Klimpt or Klee or some famouse dead painter or other, & then I click it open & it has it's own unique charm

Love the colors - for me it would be just as good without the person, but she doesn't detract.

Interesting processing choice... not sure that it adds anything to the overall effect however.

She doesn't look the least contrary, but I love the funky processing here. Voted earlier.

Voted earlier coming back to comment now.

One thing that comes off loud & clear is that Mary has a very bold and colorful garden:-) The composition has a strong book illustration-like quality. It also invokes the idea of a quilt as well - and I think that that the patchwork quilt of color idea is what hurts the composition a bit. It does take a toll on the eyes to study it for any prolonged point of time. Mary with her flowers and the patchwork quilt of color compete on the 'page' as two separate images. If Mary & her flowers had more of a 'sewn on quality' onto the patchwork of color such that it becomes textured quilt that illustrates the nursery rhyme it would be a stronger composition.
