Hanami is the Japanese custom of enjoying and appreciating flowers, particularly cherry blossoms, for their transient beauty. After blooming, they generally last only 2 weeks at most before they fall. So during this period, people fill the parks day and night to celebrate together under the beautiful trees.  

 

This is one of a recent series of nature/floral paintings, made as a response to spending so much more time on walks than with groups of people. 🤪 They incorporate my love of linework mixed with abstract washes, plus relevant nature factoids and/or quotes from famous poets.

 

Flowers are fragile and short-lived, but also infallibly cyclical, which is a comfort. Cherry blossoms, and seasonal flowers in general, remind us to celebrate life, in all its beauty and transience, while we can.
