Plum blossom

I have started two paintings this year after not having painted for about 20 years. I am really enjoying the idea of doing this for myself and doing it with a conscious sense of not feeling guilty (for not working or doing housework!) but as a gift of time for myself. If you read my gardening blog you know I love nature and blossoms so I have been working on a plum blossom painting, perhaps subconsciously knowing that many cultures view the plum blossom as a symbol of renewal and hope for new life.
