It's a slow start, first the hint of little buds sprout, then like the explosion of popcorn kernels delicate blossoms burst forth covering the trees with a profusion of color.  Beautiful but fleeting as the wind comes with a mighty gust and the petals flutter and fall to the ground.

When a painting takes over things can change in a hurry.
The first image is of the under-painting which I had done with the intention of it being a underwater painting of a koi think seaweed, deep blues, and greens the background fits perfectly.

But as the painting progressed I kept seeing trees filled with cherry blossoms, big, round, fluffy blossoms.

Trying to capture a good image of this painting was harder then the actual painting process.  With so many variations of color the camera doesn't seem to pick them all up very well
