Under the Weeping Cherry

"Under the Weeping Cherry", pastel, 12x16, 2010
The weeping cherry tree in my yard is so beautiful in the spring. It is often the backdrop for pictures of the children from when they were young to prom. I had envisioned a young girl reading under this tree, with the hanging branches around her, and the beautiful bright pink flowers like an umbrella over her head. I asked a young girl in my son's class to be the model. I liked her long dark hair and thought she looked nice reading under this tree!
This painting will most likely be at the Button-Petter Gallery exhibit opening July 11.
