My love for this beautiful tree was sparked by my wife enthusiastic description of her profound experience in her country back in Korea, where she will visit the nearby home garden to admire the magnificent beauty of what nature has to offer.
Painting With Imagination
Since I’m no such order, to begin with, I hereby paint it with my humble version of Cherry Blossom from my imagination before I arrive at the festival to witness it myself.
In The Process
In truth, I was not sure if I could produce something with acrylic paint of botanical nature. The only work I ever produced that resemblance a plant was a pencil sketch I did in the Botanical Garden. Confronted by the empty canvas, my heart spoke of a breaking all the rules and structure that precede itself, followed by a few unsuccessful versions.
The dread of me not able to paint it was all over my face. As each time I return to the canvas, I realize that my strokes had found its way to express my ideas entirely different from what I had preconceived. I suppose these ideas were styles of my own in the making.
