“Joyful Blossoms”, acrylic on canvas, 100 x 80 cm/39 x 31.5 in., 2022 is a commissioned project. I was very excited to be asked to make a painting inspired by the season of Spring and blossoms in particular. The collector wanted the main colours of the painting to be bright pinks and greens with a mood of joy and celebration. Spring blossoms transported the collector to memories of holidays and I kept this mind during the painting process. I took inspiration from the variety of cherry blossoms that can have up to one hundred petals per flower. These flowers are pink puffs that pop against the green leafy background.
