I don’t normally do still life or nature-inspired illustrations, but I made an exception this week, since I really wanted to make a special card for someone. The card was in sympathy for my doctor whose daughter recently died, and well, since there are really no words that can make someone feel better under those circumstances, I wanted the image to communicate a feeling rather than a message. And there’s something about cherry blossoms in my view that depicts beauty and hope, but not in a way that’s cloying. I can’t explain why other than perhaps because it’s one of the first signs of spring.
Yeah I know, that’s still a while away. Nevertheless, we can live vicariously through art.
This is such a wonderful drawing. It really puts me into
a spring mood. Cherry blossom trees are so beautiful
and I think your painting really captures this beauty. 🙂
This is just lovely. I wish I was as good as you at painting flowers. X
aw, this looks lovely and fresh! Love cherry blossoms!<3
I love it, wouldn’t it look nice on a silk fabric?? 🙂
