Rainier Cherry blossom as it looks today. This is how it looked when I started my little painting, strange and a bit creepy in the number of buds crammed onto a branch. Like something out of control, or a disease. But also very beautiful. I compared it to a drawing I made of mussels clinging to a beach stone in a previous post. This little painting is about 8"x10". I like how the bare background emphasizes the odd shape and the dancing pattern of the white blossoms. I am happy with it and want to incorporate something similar into a bigger painting.
