Rose-covered Glass Heart



One of my sisters who is an artist gave me a glass heart that she painted.



She covered it with lovely pink roses done with a one-stroke painting technique.



I would do anything to be able to paint pink roses like this but, alas, I don't have that talent.


I have had this lovely keepsake for many years but I especially love to put it out during Valentine's month.



It's hard to photograph because it's made completely of transparent glass but I hope you can get an idea of what it looks like. 




It's sooooo pretty.

DO YOU HAVE ARTISTIC TALENT?

Oh that is really pretty! I too can't paint like that but I seem to have a knack for creating parties and decorating my home. :) Happy Valentine's Day! Kit

Such a pretty piece! I can tell you treasure it with all your heart.
I do a lot of crafting, but I find painting very difficult.
Have a great Valentine's week my friend.

Hello from Spain: your glass heart is fabulous. Your sister is an artist. She paints beautiful flowers. Unfortunately I do not know how to paint. I do not have that ability. Keep in touch

That's very pretty, it's very hard to paint on glass.

The glass heart is amazing :) Your sister is very talented!
I just read your comment on my blog(thank you much!) - Your mother was Polish? Really? Have you ever be in Poland? :)

That is just so beautiful Susan, and looks very nice when the light shines to it. I would say that I have some artistic talent (tehee) I'm being very modest though :) Have a great week ahead!

Hugs

Ohhhh, it is sooooo beautiful! What an artist, she is!

I've tried painting in oils, a long time ago. Just a bit. And did more than one, with pastels. But haven't really tried much art, in a long time.

Gentle hugs,
Tessa~

I love the glass heart. Alas I have no artistic talent and no talent for decorating like you. Enjoy the week of LOVE!

What a lovely work of art! It is something I would have a great deal of difficulty creating. No artistic talent here.

Susan, that is beautiful. I don't have any artistic talent whatsoever! Your sister really gave you a beautiful gift! Hugs, Linda

I have to tell you that is one of the prettiest works of art. Your sister is very talented. I know you are - maybe not in the same way, but talented. And no I have no artistic talents! lol sandie
