Bleeding Hearts, 5x7" Oil on Canvas
This is the time of year (for just a few weeks) that the beautiful Bleeding Heart Plant blooms. The small bright pink flowers look like little ballerinas hanging from a long stem, dancing in the breeze... But, when you look closely - you see something more. They appear to be heart shaped puffed pillows, which have split open in the lowest point and are dripping out a white teardrop. (Thus, the name, I suppose.) They are very delicate - very beautiful!
