The Chameleon Flowers: Fully CASTable Art

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Sionelle here at MTS and others have created some very nice high-end watercolor/acrylic/oil customizable paintings but they are large, expensive pieces of art. So I focused on lower-end, smaller pieces with a totally different feel.

These flower paintings are somewhat in the style of American painter Georgia O’Keeffe, but not entirely, because many of them employ a mixed-media approach.

There are ten paintings in the one file, and every part, frame and art, can be recolored to a scheme that matches the décor of your Sim’s home.

Here is an example of some recolors of a few of the paintings.

More pictures of recolors are available at the bottom of the page among the thumbnails, along with a picture showing color channels.

Nine of the images were created with various Photoshop brushes; one image began as a picture of a piece of counted-cross stitchery and was transformed (through Photoshop magic) into a watercolor.

No expansion or stuff packs are needed. The mesh was play tested on a base game fully patched to 1.38, and on a game full of expansions and stuff packs using 1.38. It might work with other levels, but there are no guarantees.

I love thanks and welcome comments, and of course, please report any problems you have here in this thread.
