Bouquets To Art

I've got this series of been working on. Really just trying to gather source material. It's about addiction and recovery. The original inspiration is the building you see below, in the background. It seemed so sad but trying to hang on to some kind of dignity. I wanted to balance it out with the warmth of the red flowers and realized it was a great metaphor for addiction and the growth of recovery.

However, it's not easy to find old skeletons of buildings. If you see some let me know. I've got several now, then I realized that in sunny California it's just as hard to find flowers!

Which led me to Bouquets for Art. Have you seen it? What did you think?

Below is the art I'm trying to build off of, and I made a little slideshow of my fav bouquets.
