I brought a cheap artist palette, rectangle shape, and added water based colors with a palette knife, rubber scraper, and a brush, to look like a abstract impressionistic painting, of the some red geraniums in a terracotta pots, that I have.
I also added some fresh geraniums flowere, into the hole, along with two artist brushes.
I was very pleased with the result of this one, even before I photographed it. I used a serrated patterned rubber scraper, to make the wavy patterns and lines, and also a palette knife as well.
I hope you like it, as it looks like a VAn Gogh painting and I am pleased with that.
Now I have a colorful Impressionism Pallette board, but prefer this image.
Normal processing, plus some burning, added Guassiam Blur. and also some noise.
Cropped, added border, and resized for web.

You put so much effort into this, I'm impressed and I'd venture to say Van Gogh would be envious. :) I see the pots now, when I didn't before - this is really quite good - the brushes and added flower make interpreting the image (without having read the description beforehand) a bit confusing, but I see that you wanted to cover up the hole - maybe you could have covered the hole with a bit of cardboard and painted over it?
hey shez .. this is so imaginative, creative and excellent ... it totally deserved a higher score .. the colours are intense .. fantastic impressionist result .. i love how you've got the flowers in the pots, made with your paints, on the palette .. and of course the real one as well .. the brushes poking thru are a master stroke .. MAD !!! ..
I can't be sure of the way this photo was made; I don't know whether it is an actual nature scenery with heavy (but selective, sparing the brush)filter applied to it or the picture of an actual painting. The latter, of course, would not be 'legal', or at least I think so, therefore, I am not going to score it.
