“Earth laughs in flowers”, Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us. Oscar Wilde once said, “Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.” Flowers are symbols of many positive emotions. During a long, cold and colorless winter we yearn to bring bright color into our lives. With the budding of flowers our moods are immediately lifted. These artists bring flowers, hope and renewal to us all year long. They are inspired to express the positive aspects of nature and all of its multi-facets. Enjoy our Healing Power of ART Gallery member artists’ beautiful floral expressions. Visit their pages and their websites and consider buying their beautiful artwork to enhance your life.
