Bleeding Hearts

 Bleeding Hearts
10" x 20" oil on panel
$400 - shipping included in North America

The current boat painting I'm working on just isn't cooperating, but I will conquer it today if it kills me!  When one piece frustrates, I start on something entirely different to get over the hump and reassure myself that yes, I still can paint!

Here is the completed painting of Bleeding Hearts that I started yesterday over an abandoned painting.  These old fashioned flowers are a favourite, especially in northern gardens as they flower profusely and for so long in spring.  For me, they'll never go out of favour.

9 x 12 oil on panel

And....don't forget to check out my Sunday Sale on Etsy.  Most Sunday's I am virtually giving away an original painting at half price.  I am making room in the studio as this new series is taking up a LOT of room.  And I love making original art affordable for people.  Have a look, you might find a great gift for yourself or someone else to start their original art collection.

The bleeding hearts are so...meaningful. A very creative painting!

Thank you. Old fashioned flowers often are associated with memories from the past - an old relative's garden or past house. Its amazing what an image or sound can evoke in memories.

love the colours :D

and using a palette knife has given the flowers lots of movement

I had the need for pinks, purples and reds. :) A palette knife really frees up movement and looseness.
