Dancing Cherry Blossoms - Art


Dancing Cherry Blossoms is a lovely painting that captures the delicate beauty of cherry blossoms in bloom. The individual cherry blossoms themselves are not actually depicted in a naturalistic way. Instead, the suggestion of a full, blooming cluster of the beautiful, fragrant flower is given by painting ruffled, frilly lines that evoke the image of thousands of blossoms all clustered together in the cherry trees. This abstract depiction suggests a vast expanse of blooming cherry blossoms.

Though this painting depicts the natural beauty of blooming flowers, it is abstract in nature. This depiction of cherry blossoms has a dream-like, surreal mood. In this way, the nature of a blooming cluster of cherry blossoms is captured, rather than the literal image of the flowers in bloom. The emotional effect of the beautiful flowers takes precedence over an accurate depiction in Dancing Cherry Blossoms.
