Three Hearts - Guest Heart Thursday


This is a watercolor of a wind chime which hangs out on our front porch. It is one of the very few watercolors I have done in my life.
.
The chimes have hung on the porch of every home we've lived in for a little over 20 years. Over the years they've reminded me to pray for the family of the dear one who gave them to me.
.
There are poignant memories associated with these chimes. When I hear the music they play as they whisk around in the wind, it reminds me that God is in the business of the miraculous and that there is always hope.

For more wonderful heart art, photography and altogether fabulous heart stuff from around the world, visit Clytie at Random Hearts for Guest Heart Thursday.

Ah sissie, I saw these wind chimes the last time I visited ... and fell in love with the originals as well as with the watercolor you made of them. You are amazing!

Thank you so much for sharing these GORGEOUS hearts on Guest Heart Thursday!

They are so lovely! I wouldn't mind having a necklace made out of one of those hearts.

Beth... where do you find the time to draw all these amazing works of art... I barely have time to post my pictures!

I lover your wind chimes and the memories... I have one on my deck that reminds me of the person that gave it to me also... how touching music can be!

Beautiful painting! You are a gifted artist!

Every gush of the wind swaying the wind chimes, does bring good memories, how pleasant to the ear.

P.S. My daughter has a blue glass heart necklace almost like your painting.
