Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is part of a series of 'mini-paintings' that I've been working on. This particular piece, which measures 3" x 3", was based on a picture I took with my iPhone of a bunch of cosmos in a jar. I used transparent watercolor on Arches watercolor board. There are more examples on my website, Floral minis like this began when I started sending cards to people with one of them attached. They were so well received, that I started framing them -- and people love them. It's a fun project -- you fellow watercolorists might want to try it!
