Covering the flower

I WISH I had a before picture of this painting. It was big, I mean really big, like in your face bright pink flower. I liked it. My husband hated it. So I attempted to cover it up. Why throw away a perfectly good canvas? I figured it wasn't going to be perfect, just something to go in the middle of our large gorgeous (aka awful) wood paneling mantle. (The joys of renting, eh?) So in a half an hour or so, I came up with this. This is pre-touchups mind-you so don't go looking at my splatters on the black lines. They're cleaned up now. :) But I used what I had, some wall paint, and brushes, and have a fresh new painting, and a happier husband! $0 spent!
