Artist's description:

Bouquet of flowers- carnations & chrysanthamums.I had drawn the outline of this arrangement with fineliner & it lay in the loft for years-now I have added colour & it has pleasantly come to life.The background is silver acrylic paint- as are parts of the flowers- started as watercolour but because I only had little watery- rather weak tablet watercolours- I wanted to give it a bit more oompfh!, zip & vigour!.I'm quite pleased the way the silver complements the crystal vase.I think this may have been my parent's silver wedding anniversary present so quite appropriate.! There is also a line of masking tape with paint splodges- this is intentional- part of a body of work using collage; this would normally be discarded but acts as a highlight in a very experimental fashion- to indicate what might have been the table but also kind of hides some more expressive brushmarks- which I wasn't so sure if I liked or not!.
