The Language of Flowers

I've started a series of ACEO's (tiny 2.5 X 3.5 inch paintings to sell or trade) based on The Language of Flowers. I recently read a novel by that name, and found out that in Victorian times, each flower had a special meaning and people would communicate a secret message to each other using flowers.
The series so far:
Tulip ~ Declaration of Love

Daisy ~ Innocence

Pink Rose ~ Grace

Chinese Lantern ~ Meditation

Thistle ~ Misanthropy

More to follow.
Oh, and you can purchase these in my Etsy store!
