“A river seems a magic thing. A magic, moving, living part of the very earth itself.” – Laura Gilpin
Due to some technical difficulties, I have no time lapse video of making the painting. However, here’s the final product:
“There is no such sense of solitude as that which we experience upon the silent and vast elevations of great mountains. Lifted high above the level of human sounds and habitations, among the wild expanses and colossal features of Nature, we are thrilled in our loneliness with a strange fear and elation – an ascent above the reach of life’s expectations or companionship, and the tremblings of a wild and undefined misgivings.”
― Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu,

As a painter, my biggest inspiration is Mother Nature. It always has something beautiful to offer, all year round.
Spring finally arrived and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it, than by painting a gorgeous cherry blossom tree, in a fresh mountain landscape.
Welcome back, Spring. I missed you!
