Cherry Tree Tops, oil and enamel on canvas, 200 x 120 x 2 cm on two panels each measuring 100 x 120 x 2 cm
Cherry blossoms bloom , pink petals fall lazily, a confetti carpet. Blossom and Blue sky, Spring is here. In the shade of the cherry tree I look at the startling colour in the sunlight. I feel more fluid, more relaxed and chilled. Here I feel peaceful. I take a deep breathe. I am awed by the beauty of the world. 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 dew drops. Cherry Tree Tops is ready to hang.
