The hand-made paper used for the background in this still life was crying out to be represented by a little old school sponge painting. So I cut a petal shape and got happy printing.

There were a lot of flowers to paint in this set up and I got a little tense trying to record them in their prime before they died.

Some lasted longer than others so I flitted about doing those who didn’t look like they’d last until day two.

The title came about really easily because to me this painting is a record of just that.
