I wanted to capture the soft colors of early spring in this painting of my weeping cherry.  It isn't fully blooming yet and the Katsura leaves in the forground still have that combination of new green and red that is so elusive in the spring.  It is the most beautiful time of year and the most dificult to capture in paint.  Everything blends together in a fine mist of color as the whole world slowly comes to life again.
