Bleeding Hearts


Bleeding Hearts

As of today this reminds me not only of family,
but of this incredibly awful political season and the vitriol
among people on the “same side.”
I am told I am a bleedin’ heart liberal.
I wear it proudly.

And, I am shocked at how much Opera Pink and Quin pink I am using.
Choosing to paint flowers certainly changes one’s palette!W16 7 15 PENTALIC BLEEDING HEARTS 01 SQ

  1. Very nice. Really like the loose style. I am seeing a lot these by the roadside.

    I love that you speak about politics! I don’t really have it in me, on my art blog, lol

    I think this season has been a disgrace – I spent the past 3 months phonebanking for Bernie, and we all saw where that went. By now I have basically washed my hands off the whole mess.

    anyway sorry for the tangent LOL love your drawing! Pink is fabulous and also I really like the handwriting, actually

    I like you flowers and the reference to the situation in the world today. OUr hearts are certainly bleeding. Being told you are a bleeding heart liberal is a complement.
