So, as always, I'll begin with my overall thoughts-- beautiful, abstract, and wonderfully colourful. First of all, the symmetry of this work is great -- in the top left corner, we have the domestic- the house, the air conditioner, the swing. In the bottom left quadrant, however, we have nature, in the forme of flowers, and, in between these two is the beautifully drawn girl- placed directly between nature and domesticity. In the right quadrants we have her hair blending into a wave-like pattern, which adds the abstract to the piece, changing the scene entirely, and implying water rushing in toward her- maybe an implication of nature closing in on her? The colour choice is beautiful- the many shades of blended blues for the wavy pattern, the vivid colour of the flowers, her bright pink dress and shaded flaxen hair. Finally is the phenomenal perspective as the girl faces out INTO the incoming waves and signs of nature as if ready to be a part of them and leave her domestic trappings [thus her hair already blending with the waves- she's already joining with nature]. Amazing work, truly inspiring and beautiful.

You have done a wonderful job with the foreground. The flowers are wonderful, and her hair and clothing are blended nicely.

Everything else is sort of wishy washy to me.
The size of the chains in proportion to her body, and in relation to the tree.
The perspective is thrown off where the building cuts off at the background.
The use of blue on the side is unnecessarily overpowering.

I would recommend further study in the ways of perspective, human anatomy, and maybe practice a little more with use of Color Theory.

It really is nice, I'm a harsh critic.
