We have a cherry tree blooming in the back yard. This is a painting of some of the blossoms. Two weeks ago, they were just little white flowers, but now they show a little bit of pink color in the middle.
When I read about the things happening in Japan these days and see the pictures, I have no words to express my sorrow. Other people are good with words, and can write poetry and such things. I can’t do that well, but I can paint, and I do have these good cherry blossoms as a subject, so I painted this to dedicate to the people of Japan. I hope that isn’t too presumptuous of me.
