After completely trashing last one, i did another one...different for sure, but more like the reference photo and of course has so much more freshness to it.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Attached is the reference photo Dennis. It's not totally eclipsed by the background light, but i do understand the importance of the concept you're describing. Thanks for giving me the insight and better awareness. i did make the stems very light because they have the "wrapped around" ..infused effect from the light.....all of this can pretty much be an intuitive thing if you look hard enough at things. Anyway, this is a totally new painting. I destroyed that last one completely....just wiped off the flowers because their were too many and regretting that. At least i had the courage to do it again. Reference Photo Here
Wife tells me how dissapointed she is that i ruined it.....and believe me, I'm hurting over it too, but do you think THIS ONE is better than before????

Thanks Val.
