spring is cherry blossoms!

A small painting before Easter weekend to celebrate this long, slow Vancouver spring. It may be cooler than usual but that sure makes all the blossoms last!

This is just 6″x6″. The size is fun for quick studies and experiments – very freeing! This painting is based on a friend’s photo that she graciously let me use as inspiration. Thanks Claire!

Tom wrote a quirky haiku to go with these Taiwanese cherry blossoms. 🙂

Have not been posting lately… it’s been that kind of summer so far – too much work, not enough painting!

These are two very small oil paintings (8″x8″) done in a short time. I plan to continue working on them, with what you see here just being the under-painting. This may become a series of studies inspired by trees and the feeling that one can get of refuge and tranquility when there is a canopy of foliage overhead…
