I have referenced this same flower for an acrylic painting and also a
graphite value study. I think that practice helped me when painting it
this time with watercolor and gouache. The pencil work is a quote by Ai
Weiwei: "But I think that everybody has to do things their own way."
Regarding how I mounted this work. So yeah, I used masking tape. I've
always loved masking tape. And maybe it won't "last" for a hundred
years ... or maybe it will. But what of it? It's never not now.
