Animal, vegetable, or abstract

Just playing in the studio today
I will let you guess what this painting is supposed to be or not to be
Warm today but cloudy and we just had a little shower
which we needed badly - they had to close I-95 in the county just north of us because of forest fires and we can actually smell the smoke
I have Beef Bourguignon (recipe from the Barefoot Contessa) simmering on the stove
it is a complicated recipe but I love to make it at least once every winter
I had a very happy surprise this morning:
I won a $25 gift certificate to Joggles.com from the Sketchbook Challenge blog - Yay!
Joggles sells mixed media, drawing, doll making, and other types of craft supplies
I am super excited - not sure yet what to order because they have such fantastic stuff!
Hope you are having a great day!
Chris

To me, the paining looks like some sort of water-flowers (don't know the name in English) that are ready to bloom... am I far wrong? And congrats on the certificate, isn't it marvelous to receive such things and you get to 'just pick what you want'. I always feel like a little kid when it happens to me.. Enjoy!
