Earth Day: The Earth is Laughing in Flowers!

"Earth laughs in flowers."-Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hamatreya

Raquel Roth, Garden Glow, Acrylic on Canvas, 12"x12", $375

The flowers are blooming, the Earth must be laughing! The past week has shown that Spring is truly here in Halifax! It is undeniable the difference the singing birds, buds on the trees, and cycles of new growth make.

Lio Lo, Morning Delight, Acrylic on Canvas, 24"x36", $1600

We have decided to put together a collection of works, new and old, that capture the feelings of flourishing life all around us. There is so much to celebrate about this time of the year. Each of these works is a mini celebration in itself of the possibilities of the Earth in Spring time. Please take a long look, and stretch out your branches! The sun is shining, and the Earth loves when you laugh along with it!
