I beg your pardon - Abstract Watercolor Painting

This watercolor painting started out completely abstract with no intentions.  I was playing around with "negative painting" techniques. I had read somewhere that if you use a white crayon on the paper, the watercolor will not adhere to it, so I got my scribble on and then painted over the whole thing with some golden yellow, then I moved the wet paint around with an old credit card. I had some fun finding and defining shapes... next thing I know, there are roses again! I am letting this sit for a while, not sure if it's done or not, or if it will make the cut for ArtBeat in two weeks.  :)
