Cherry Blossoms are passionately pink

One of the fun things artists get to do is enter art shows. An art gallery sends out a notice asking for artists to paint a certain theme, a certain subject or even a particular kind of medium. In this case, the C Art Gallery asked us to paint something pink for a fund raiser for Susan G. Komen for the Cure during breast cancer awareness month this October. Last year I had absolutely nothing pink, but this year I’m ready. There will be further information about this show later on.

Are these pink enough for you?

    They are definitely pink enough, Mimi! I love them. I was reminded of the pink of the Redbud trees in Missouri when we lived there. Nothing like it exists in the whole wide world, I think. They are an understory tree among the oaks that riddled the rolling hillsides where we lived…much like the wild dogwoods of the western side of Mount Hood forests.
