Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms   9"x 9"   oil SOLD
We have a cherry tree in the back yard and this is the best year we've had yet for blossoms. They kind of float around in even a small breeze and I tried to capture the way the petals catch the light and then float back into shadow.
On another note... as promised, the drawing was today, for my painting give-away (see my April 24th post). I have emailed the winner. Once I hear from them, I will post the details. Keep watching, I'm planning to do another give-away in the not too distant future...
