It was a glorious day here today, 70 degrees and sunny, but the wind picked up, and our cherry trees started to shed blossoms. A dozen blossoms fell onto my canvas as I painted. (I picked them all off. I don't think they're archival.) The falling blossoms mean we'll be past "peak" bloom in a day or two, if not already. So all the more reason to paint them again!
It was especially fun today because I got to try out a new batch of gorgeous brushes from Rosemary, which are hand-made in England and yet reasonably priced. Also, I painted larger than usual: 16" x 20." I thought it turned out pretty well!
