COLONEL.. Did you paint the flowers?

Lovely!!

I'm sorry, I couldn't quite see the detail until I enlarged the image. You have a wonderful gift. My Aunty paints botanicals, she's very talented.

I picked it in the middle of the night so it hadn't fully bloomed. I used my cellphone as a flashlight. I was very sneaky.

Or it may look funny because I'm out of practice and couldn't find any watercolor paper.

It did smell nice. Like...purple. A sweet purple.

1.618,
is that USD or AUD?

1618 said...

I think I will take the US Greenback thank you.

If any lovely philanthropist would like to purchase this lovely piece please contact me.

Colonel, you could make them into lovely cards.

Col. Milquetoast said...

Not a bad idea! And I could use the same image but change the text inside and sell the basically the same card with a different purpose! For example, one card, for romantics, would read "A lovely flower for a lovely lady"

and the second card, for people you don't like, would read :

The flower is picked it starts to wilt,
What it was building is completely built,
its petals will dry
its going to to die
and eventually you're going to die too,
so quit being such a dick to everyone.

(I still need to work on the rhymingness of the last bit)

Col. Milquetoast said...

Having given this serious consideration, I've decided I'd like to purchase your piece "Flower Pollens in the wind" Never before have I seen pollen so well executed.

I shall purchase this with the new 'teh internets' money. Please download and print this out 6580 times and accept it as payment in full.

P.S. this new 'teh internets' money is valid only with those stoned, smashed, or extra dull.

is that convolvulus?

I ain't no poet Col., but...

The flower is picked it starts to wilt,
What it was building is completely built,
its petals will dry
its going to fry,
And just like it, you'll die.
Hopefully soon.

I need to work on my last line too.

for kk : the plastic thing in the pot says "Wave Lavender"
