Oriental Blossoms

Oriental Blossoms
Original 30" x 40" x 0.75" painting
Golden, Liquitex, and Atelier acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas

Today's painting was inspired by the new spring growth that's starting to blossom everywhere. There's a hint of green on the lawns, trees are starting to leaf out, and blossoms like these are beginning to appear. Spring is such a wonderful time of renewal, growth, and change. These blossoms were behind the garage where I rarely go, so it was a gift to find and appreciate them.

This painting sold the same day I listed it on my sales venues, too!
