Happy early spring, everyone. I’ve been looking for an excuse to paint something involving cherry blossoms (none of which I’ve actually seen yet in NYC) but I would say spring finally coming last week qualifies.

I know this watercolor isn’t very fashiony but I guess it’s my subconscious’s way of telling me I need to get outside more, and read more, and not just blogs and the news, either. I also made a point of not getting too precise with any of my painting this time by attempting to slavishly depict anyone in particular (or her outfit). Instead I just went where my mood took me. The result may not be a masterpiece but I actually feel a lot more at peace having left my comfort zone a bit.
