Gerber Daisy (Acrylics) Daily Art and Writing 04-27-17

"The Earth Laughs in Flowers.
-  Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Daisies have a special place in my heart.  The bridesmaids at our wedding carried small white wicker baskets filled with white daisies.  I painted my daisies today in a deep crimson as I contemplated the poem "Hamatreya" by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  A line that sticks in my mind from that poem - "Earth laughs in flowers."  The red daisy in today's painting is reflecting back the laughter of the Earth.
