Very effective use of thirds, stroke intensity really helps to convey a sense of contrast without being too busy. The foreground certainly conveys the idea of flowers and grass without committing to details, letting the eye roam farther back bringing the background into better focus. The piece certainly puts you into a setting and gives you a feeling of the location. I enjoy that you have used a non white background for this, it helps to soften the initial focus without losing the appeal of the subject matter. Also, a non straight border creates a warmer feeling- less 'clinical' approach. Well done.
