Cherry blossoms on water, oil and enamel on canvas, 160 x 100 x 2 cm on two canvases (Diptych) each measuring 80 x 100 x 2 cm
Cherry blossoms on water, pink petals fall lazily in the lake. Blossom and Blue sky, Spring is here. In the shade of the cherry tree I look at the lake and the startling colour in the sunlight. I feel more fluid, more relaxed and chilled. Here I feel lulled. My inspiration for this beautiful painting is a wonderful arboretum near my home where you can sit under the shade of a tree on the banks of a lake and let hours slip by. In spring time the blossoms on the trees are breath taking. The painting uses a contrast of expressionist dripped paint and palette knifed flowers with finely painted branches and textured blossoms to create a gloriously soothing artwork. Small areas of gold leaf glitter and catch light like sun rays on water Cherry Blossoms on water is ready to hang.
