Celery Rose

I tried the idea of using the bottom section of a stalk of celery to create the look of a rose.  I just cut about two inches off the stalk then wiped the cut edge with a paper towel to attempt to get a drier surface. It could have been drier in order to have the acrylic paint adhere better.  But, it gave it a mottled look which is a cool effect.   The leaves are done with a sponge that I had cut a few years ago.
