Glow of Bleeding Hearts

 

As a part of my Open Series, I painted Bleeding Hearts because I was so taken by the dangling flowers when I first saw them in Oregon. The idea was to enhance that light, airy feel of them swaying on the stems with the moon behind, but at the same time outshining the moonglow with its own.

 

This is an original mixed media painting on sky blue colored handmade paper, with gouache, embroidery threads and beads . The size of the painting is approximately 5" x 7" and is mounted in a float frame. The overall size of the frame is approximately 6"x 8". It comes varnished with 2 coats of Krylon Kamar spray varnish to ensure protection from sunlight over time. 

 

The frame is handmade in my home studio from pinewood and has a double coat of espresso water based varnish. It comes in two parts that are attached with screws on the back. If ever need be, the painting can be detached from the outer frame by removing the said screws. 

Artist's signature with the date on the side and back of the frame.
