While tidying up my studio I ran across this nearly completed watercolor. For some reason, most likely because I ran out of time with a show deadline looming, I set it aside. I smiled when I realized I didn’t remember which side was the bottom and which the top. I spun it all 4 directions and all worked, but this felt more right. In my backyard the cherry tree is starting to bloom again. How timely a discovery it was!
I’m regularly asked if I’ve studied Asian art or traveled to that part of the world. I’ve studied from afar but never been to Asia. Truthfully, in our increasingly smaller world the influences are so melded in my brain, I don’t know where they originally came from. With this composition, it could be as simple as it appeals to me and brings a smile to my face once completed.
