I sketched and began painting this cherry blossom tree I came across in Blackburn Park at the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom festival. There was a small stand of them on a hill top in the park. This is part of a series of intuitive paintings using layers of loosely painted acrylic colors applied with brushes and palette knives to capture a reflective mood. Instead of working directly from a reference, I create sketches in a notebook first and then paint from memory.
