Finished Small Paintings

Monday, November 29, 2010

As promised, here are my finished paintings for Red Dot Gallery's Holiday Show.

This one is entitled "My Hearts Bleed for You."  These flowers are called bleeding hearts, and I have also seen them in red and pink.  I probably should have painted red ones because the name "bleeding hearts" makes more sense when they are red.


This is "Madame Blueberry and her Minions."  The fat blueberries reminded me of my daughter's favorite Veggie Tales cartoon about Madame Blueberry and thankfulness.


Here is a picture I posted before of the blueberry painting in progress.  Notice I "erased" the leaf on the blueberries.


This  one is my favorite.  It is called "Don't Pepper Me with Questions."


Here is "King Cotton."


This is my last one for the show entitled "Tempted."


Now I need to start my day and dash to the frame shop.  Why am I such a procrastinator?

I am linking to the Feathered Nest Friday Holiday Party at the French Country Cottage.

Until next time...

  1. My goodness Ricki, your paintings are incredibly beautiful! I especially love the bleeding hearts...they're one of my favorite flowers. How did the show go...did you sell all of them?

  2. Thanks, Marie. You are so kind! The show's opening reception isn't until Saturday, Dec. 4. I know that King Cotton has sold (like a pre-sale, LOL), but I don't think anything else has sold yet.

  3. Wow! Your paintings are gorgeous Ricki! I love the flowers - they are beautiful~ you are a very talented artist! Thank you for sharing at my party and Happy Holidays!

  4. Ricki...LOVE THEM ALL. Email me about King Cotton (if you still have it)...the size & price! You are sooo talented! (I'll keep looking for more posts featuring your art)
