Spring Tree - and Memories

Spring Tree                            8" x 12"                              oil
I painted plein aire today but didn't have far to go because this tree is in our backyard. When it blooms each year, it's like a beautiful gift, wrapped in every shade of pink you can imagine. It has a lovely umbrella form and is a favorite for both myself and my sister, because it always reminds us of our mom...... who loved it and anticipated it's bloom every spring.
Pin It

This is so beautiful Mary! I can't wait until my cherry tree shows its first blossoms!! I love the color and the touching story behind it!

Bonjour chère Mary,

D'avoir peint ce magnifique cerisier japonais est un bel hommage à votre maman. (Je suppose que c'est bien un cerisier japonais !)

Des couleurs éclatantes. Très jolie peinture.

❀ ♡ Gros bisous ♡ ❀

Beautiful, Mary, I appreciate and understand it reminding you of your mother. I have those types of reminders too.
