Things to do whilst teaching

The last two weeks of Art class have been very quiet, so I got out a canvas and played around whilst my students were working.
and this is what I ended up with.
Although  I like parts of it, I have absolutely no objectivity regarding it and am unhappy with the flowers.  Probably, this is because I tend to put a lot of detail and structure in usually, but with this I used mostly a palette knife, which does not allow for detail.  I did add some detail with gel pens yesterday, which improved it a lot.
What I need to know is does it appeal?  Would you like it on your wall?  Don't just say it's nice, because you think you couldn't do it (I believe anyone can make art if they approach it from the right point of view).
I don't often have pieces of work that I am unsure of like this, so I need some real constructive criticism.

Happy creating!
