Signs of Spring #8

6"x 4" original watercolor

The Daily Painters suggested theme today
is "Celebrating Mom". I was stuck for something
to paint. So I asked Linda to come up with
an idea. I just knew she would go with a flower.
She went out to her garden and came in with
"Bleeding Hearts" as her tribute to mothers.
I think it is an inside joke of some sort because
she kept chuckling to herself. I never paid
much attention to this flower but it is very
delicate. She placed it in an old blue vase and
set it on the windowsill in my studio, creating
a flower stilllife but also a landscape out the
window. As a tribute to the mother of my
child, I painted the Bleeding Hearts with
no fussing at all!
