Ooooh, a world of black and white brought to life by some sort of art, where have I seen that before?
Too many times.
You know while this is a well made piece with some great composition, I'm not really getting the sense of depressing 
atmosphere juxtaposing the vibrant life of plants, mainly because of how vibrant and alive the background is.
I mean look at that bird in the lower right corner, he is just owning that dive, and the background is so varied and well separated
and nice to look at.  
And I know some may say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and while its true that this work is good-looking
good-looking is standard issue for daily deviations. 
Unfortunately I have to say that I find this to be an overused idea that isn't even executed 100%.
A better way may have been to make the background more malicious, rotting, or more unfamiliar.
You had me with the composition and details but lost me with the concept.

Very nice job; I love the way she seems to either bring color to the world, or discover it where it can't be easily found. :)
(I also love the reference to Proust's In Search of Lost Time :D )

The concept of this work is lovely. I really like how the painter preserves the image of the flower in our fleeting world while also interpreting its substance in her very own way.

I really like how you can still see the painter clearly as well rather than her blending too much into the background
