This painting entitled "Sakura" was done in response to the catastrophic disasters Japan suffered last month. It's done in watercolor & liquid acrylic mix on 140lb coldpress paper and I plan to enter it in the SDWC members show in May with the theme "Brothers at the Border", a cross cultural show. The tree depicted here, was blossoming in my backyard as the horrible events of Japan unfolded. Cherry blossoms have always been a beautiful symbol for Japan and the two chirping finches represent countries, one perhaps the US and the other of Japan, sing and chirp in the lovely flowering spring season to convey hope and help in rebuilding all that had been lost. Wishing you all a happy Easter and spring time!
