"Dance of The Cherry Blossom"
Original Oil 44x44
"The Cherry Blossom is one of my favorite trees for many reasons…for Chinese tradition the cherry blossom is often the symbol of love, while the Japanese describe as it as a symbol of life. This is what I try to inspire through my paintings :) The cherry blossom is a very delicate flower that blooms for a very short time, for some cultures this representsthe transience of life. Cherry blossoms also symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, and to me, they look like they are dancing together, beautifully joined at the hip. I hope too, the Cherry Blossom will always be your metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life, love and happiness. " ~CLAIR
