USk: Cherry Blossoms

Every year I am too busy OR the rains hit so fast that the blossoms drop.
This year I caught them!

I was out doing some disgusting errands with Mitchell
*IRS, SSI, government, ugh*
when we came upon the riverfront and saw the gorgeous cherry blossoms!
*never mind the grey im-gonna-rain skies*
Many peeps were out to see them on a Wednesday!
A lovely end to our outing, making it worthwhile!
*did i mention the governments offices could not help us?
of course.  only its their job.*

We stopped so I could do a quick sketch of the scene, to paint later.

Middle-of-the-night I painted the scene.
Oddly, I used the ONE small palette I didn’t have by the bed,
*right?  always I want what I don’t have!*
the palette meant for painting the Painted Ladies in the neighborhood.

I love line sketches… and this one I love more than the painted version…
Do you have a preference?

  1. When we lived in the DC area, I loved to go to the Tidal Basin at night so we could see the cherry blossoms glow in the dark. Magical. Something I will never forget. Love your puffs of pink!


I love hearing from visitors!
