These flowers are very interesting. I may do a couple of studies trying to capture the translucence of the petals around the white interiors. Some of them are pink and white, some are all white, and each branch seems to dangle the rows of hearts like ornaments. They bring back memories of some of the sweetest people I know. Anyhow, here is my first attempt at painting a branch of bleeding heart blossoms.

    1. Hummingbirds are awesome. I want to put up an arbor and cover it with bleeding hearts and black raspberries like my own version of a memory tree. It would be beautiful to attract hummingbirds too.
