Cherry Blossoms


Yesterday was a 70 degree day. Today is predicted to be even a little warmer. January in Colorado from years of experience is usually mild. Usually that means there will be a blizzard here in the next few weeks. I'm exaggerting, of course, kinda.... In the meantime, I dream of Spring that will come sometime in the next few months - of looking out my laundry room window to see the cherry blossoms on my little cherry tree. I painted the above a few weeks ago when it was cold out. You probably recognize it, I posted it here on my blog right after it was done. It is called "Reach". Aren't we always reaching for something? Reaching for a goal, as these blossoms reach toward the sun? It is now on Etsy.

Holy cow! We woke up to 11 degrees this morning here in Atlanta. Love the cherry blossoms. We have a lot of them around here in the spring.
