Mother’s Day

My favourite spring bouquet is always made up of the perennials that are the first to bloom. This year the bleeding hearts were crushed by the snow that fell in late April, but miraculously they survived and seem tougher than ever. They are not fully in bloom yet but I picked them anyway since their heart-shaped blooms seemed like the perfect shape for today.

    A luscious painting. I enjoyed how you painted the flowers as simple yet bold heart shapes. It gave me a smile. As did the very subtle way the top of the glass jar was painted…with the tiny highlight giving so much dimension. I think you have given everyone a very happy Mother’s Day. Thank you.

  13. Oh, that explains what happened to my bleeding heart, it looks healthy now. But the branches kinda split when we got the cold and snow. I thought it was ice freezing inside of it then thawing out again. Either way it is healthy now. You really captured the heart shapes well in your painting. I always have a hard time drawing a bleeding heart.
