Artist's Description

This is a 12″ × 16″ watercolor, acrylic & ink painting on 140lb hotpress paper created in 2010… a different take on this lovely flower…

The history of this comes from the Victorian era when heartbroken Victorian young women who wished to be loved once again by their suitors began a custom using the daisy, that is still in use today. In Victorian times a young maiden would pluck a daisy’s petals one by one and sing, “He loves me, he loves me not,” for each petal pulled. The last petal so plucked predicted the future of such love.

What a wonderful gift and an honor it is that the following beautiful poem from an amazing, talented and gifted writer Kristin was inspired by my painting “He Loves Me…” Thank you so much Kristin, I’m truly touched…..

There are no moments left,
my hands have forgotten your face;
my lips, the taste
of your words.

I am naked as love at your feet;
begging the stars
your return.

the memory of you
has become
the voice in my skin—
my heart calling out
from each pore;

all I ask in this moment
of yearning,
is the humble
and gentle
of daisy

to extract
the essence of you

from the wish
of you hand
in mine.
