Path and Pink Blossoms

Path and Pink Blossoms
Original 24" x 36" x 0.75" painting
Golden, Liquitex, and Atelier acrylics on gallery-wrapped canvas

The weather here has been very spring-like the past few days--too windy for my tastes, but warm enough to break out the capris and and sandals. This painting was inspired by the cherry blossoms that will present themselves in a few weeks, and which I truly enjoy seeing every year. I love the spring here: a time of renewal, new life, and sometimes lots of heavy, wet snow!
