Are the Roses Finished Jumping?

I have worked on this pastel painting, adjusting edges and color saturation to emphasize the intended focal point. Can you guess what it is? Thanks to Pam Newell, my pastel instructor, for the critique of my earlier work.

When Roses Jump Out

Doesn't it look like the roses wanted to go for a walk? They just jumped out of the vase before they realized, they don't have feet!

This is pastel on Wallis paper, 24 x 18. Not sure I'm finished with it. It's "percolating" overnight.
