Will comment later.

EDIT MARCH 4th:

Finally got to a computer.

I did this at 2AM on the morning of the 14th. I had been kicking the idea around in my head for about a month prior, and was insanely stoked that I actually went through with it.

For the base layer of white I used children's poster paint, applied with a paint roller.

The roses are each about 5 and a half feet tall, and yeah, there's a dozen of them. The 12 of them fit better than I thought they would.

It was visible all Valentine's Day, then covered up on the morning of the 15th.

Congratulations! This deviation was featured in Street Art vol.7, which can be found here [link] . Give it a :+favlove: so more people get to see it! Keep up the good work and maybe you'll get featured in the next edition too.

20 minutes. Most of it was waiting for the base layer of white to dry. The flowers took no time at all.
