Metallic Pink Cherry Blossom
by Stirling ArtRegular price$90.00 Sale price$150.00
Painting is in a modernized chinoiserie style, with bright pink, purple, teal and white cherry blossom branch that glints into metallic gold. It has an iridescent effect, almost like a wet paua shell shimmering in the sun. This painting is number 2 in a series of 5 cherry blossom paintings, which can be hung together in a group, or on their own. The series was inspired by the short season of the cherry blossom, which is fleeting but beautiful. Within the series I’ve tried to depict the 2-3 weeks that the cherry blossom tree flowers. There is a Japanese medieval proverb, “Hana wa sakuragi, hito wa bushi", which loosely translates as “of flowers, the cherry blossom, of humans, the warrior.” Known as Sakura in Japan, cherry blossoms have long been a symbol of rebirth and the impermanence of life. To me it’s a reminder that our lives are momentary, but we can find beauty if we look. I’ve tried to convey this in the Cherry Blossom paintings, which are very pretty.

Full disclosure: The artworks, like the artist, are not perfect. I have a Siberian Husky dog called Sasquatch and some loose strands of fur may be forever immortalized in your painting, although I can’t guarantee that either!
