"Diapente" (Still Life) is finished!

I'm so glad that I can now call this one complete.  Not sure if I've mentioned this before but it is 11" x 14" in size.

I was very tempted to leave it in black and white after I received a comment from a talented artist (thanks Wayne!) who felt it was a good stopping point.  However, my itchy inking hand got the better of me and I added the subtle color (sorry Wayne! Hope you still like it).

Honestly though, I decided to add color because it helps to differentiate the reflections on the crystal vase from the stems of the daisies.  It made more sense to my eye.

Anyone care to take a guess as to why I named it the way I did?

Here are some detail images:
