This piece was really fun to make and it's fairly small so it went rather quickly. I started out painting a layer of absorbent ground gesso onto the board and then added texture and dimension with a variety of 'things'. After that dried, I began painting with acrylics ... then came the chalk pastels and that's when things really began to happen ... it was very abstract in the beginning and then suddenly I thought "hey, those circular shapes could make great flowers" ... and voila! It's in FULL BLOOM.
