Juan Cervantes | “Bunch of Flowers”

This media file is attached to: Painting / Watercolor

I decided to go with still-life, red flowers, and the function 'appreciation' for my third painting for this artwork. I chose appreciation because when we give flowers to a loved one or a friend, we appreciate everything about them; showing them love and support; thanking them for the great things they have done; honoring them and respecting them to be part of your life and making your life a blessing! I decided to use a credit card to replace the traditional paintbrush. Using the credit card was something new and quite fun; I love the texture, and using a new tool to create a painting was unique and fun! Using a credit card as a brush for the painting made it look abstract, which I love!
