"Earth laughs in flowers" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

     Emerson's quote, "Earth laughs in flowers" captures my love of the earth and the joy flowers give me. Flowers are gifts of beauty and reminders of the impermanence of life. Flowers adorn the ever-changing face of nature and remind us to not take what we see, feel, know and cherish for granted. In their brief presence here with us, they mark the passing of time and give us witness to the cycles of birth and death.
     I paint flowers and gardens not only for what they give me but for what I can give to them and to you by expressing my love for them in my art. Each leaf, as each snowflake, is uniquely magnificent. Each blossom is a masterpiece. I drink in their beauty with my eyes and revel in their essences in body, mind and spirit.
     Here are a few of my newest and oldest, smallest and largest flower paintings to share with you. Enjoy!

     "Every leaf and twig was this morning covered with a sparkling ice armor; even the grasses in exposed fields were hung with innumerable diamond pendants, which jingled merrily when brushed by the foot of the traveler. It was literally the wreck of jewels and the crash of gems .... Such is beauty ever - neither here nor there, now nor then - neither in Rome nor in Athens, but wherever there is a soul to admire.  If I seek her elsewhere because I do not find her at home, my search will prove a fruitless one. - Henry David Thoreau
     Until we meet again, enjoy the flowers in your world and the love in your life.
     Be well. Sing out. Look within.
Thank you for being a part of my life.
