Neon Blooms

Headline prompt:  Radical to Mundane and to Radical Again:  What once seemed new that now feels old and boring?  How can you see it as new again?  How do you "jump charge" creativity when you're feeling stuck?
Color:  black & neons - bold contrasts
Quote:  Creativity is piercing the mundane to find the marvelous.  Bill Moyers

This week's prompt is by Nathalie Kalbach...


Drawing and painting flowers is something I love and never tire of. There was a time when I was so obsessed with them that I drew only blooms for a very long time. It was something radical for me trying out different blooms which was termed as 'mundane' by my husband and then I travelled and tried something different which actually helped me to develop a few other areas and now again I am trying out flowers in a variant light. I haven't used neon colours as far as I remember in my paintings....just neon!

Neon Blooms - 6x4 postcard, Watercolour and felt pens

This card is actually for the post card swap happening at Artists in Blogland... I hope to join them. The last date for joining is tomorrow and I have to make one more. 

Linking it to Fall Fearless and Fly Challenge 8 (last challenge) in Artists in Blogland.

These are really beautiful and definitely not "mundane". I love the shapes of your flower heads. Just this morning I am debating "what to paint today!" beautiful colors of neon.
