Today's prompt was "something with bristles." I wish these prompts were more interesting--I have to work too hard at coming up with the unexpected. Paintbrush, obviously, or toothbrush, or scrub brush--some kind of brush. Some people did hedgehogs or pigs, some chose bristly mustaches, one woman did her own hairy legs (!). Since this is a flower, and fairly soft, I don't suppose it strictly counts as bristles, but it LOOKS bristly. So I'm going with it.
Jennifer Lawson inspired me to try some spatter. I think something that was not red might have read better--this looks like Dexter did it.
