A Very Unique Flower Indeed

Bleeding Hearts o/c   14x10
Bleeding Hearts must be one of the world's most unique flowers.  They truly are beautiful little hearts with a "drop" falling from them.   I wanted to represent them in a way that felt a little less traditional.  I laid the composition out to be a bit more contemporary and then I worked at keeping the brushwork fresh.  I love green glass and had great fun trying to create the glass and show that each container was just a little bit different in color.  Hope you enjoy it!  Thank you for viewing my art!


  1. Barb, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the different greens and the variations in the blooms and linear effect of the stems. Truly bleeding hearts. Thank you!!

  2. Nice work Barb! Love those Bleeding Hearts, you captured them nicely.

  3. Thank you both! Chantal...I love green glass! I have a small collection, and also that sorta' lapis blue glass..I love the transparency but yet richness of the colors...I do hope to paint more of both!
