I've noticed the last few days that all the cherry trees are beginning to shed their petals. This particular grouping of trees caught my eye in a neighborhood where I was doing some painting for a client. The trees were growing on a mulched hill and the effect of the petals laying on the ground was amazing - like a carpet of pink. Surreal.
I experimented a bit with this painting, using a palette knife to lay in some thicker patches of paint.
