"Cherry Blossoms"

8 x 6"

I stopped by the Japanese Garden in Washington Park on my way home from town several days ago. A light rain was falling, softening the color of everything. The cherry blossoms glowed as if they were little lanterns hanging in the trees. I walked up to have a closer look. The longer I watched the little flowers in the afternoon rain, the more I wanted to paint them. I love this time of year.
