Vintage Flowers

I love all things vintage and grungy…I also know that this is about the time of year that all of us who live in the Mid to East coast start dreaming of spring and warmer days… So I put the two together my love of vintage grunge and the hope that soon the flowers will be blooming and the sun will be shining. Enjoy the video!

It's beautiful Shawn. It makes me think of an old artifact that was resurrected. The colors are just so antiquated and pastel - so lovely. The flowers just look like they were buried and some how were preserved as imprints. I'm not describing this well but... it's a very UNIQUE, INTRICATE and STUNNING piece of artwork. Xj.

Awesome work of art and fabulous video of the process steps. I love how you've used the antiquing cream to grunge it and give that very aged feel to it, it's a fabulous design Shawn xxx

Beautiful work as usual, Shawn! Question .... I see you use raw umber antiquing cream, but have also seen you use raw umber paint thinned down ... what is the difference? Depends on your medium? thanks!!!
