Easy art

I need a large something above the orange dresser in my family room.  It's a high bare wall that needed attention, but I wasn't sure what.  Hubby was cleaning out a spare space in his office and came home with a couple of pictures, one of which I was thrilled to see.  I remember seeing a post on this blog -vintage revivals  - something I had wanted to try out.  The original was from the 80s or 90s - rose and blue hues.  I sprayed it all over with white spray paint, then took gray acrylic mixed with a glazing medium and highlighted the raised areas.  I had art in 1 hour - with no talent whatsoever.
