Spring blossoms and renewing the posts

What with Life, the Universe and Everything conspiring in the way they sometimes do, I have had less time than I generally like for personal reflection and creativity, and therefore art.  However, since my first (and still only) brick and mortar show I have not been utterly fruitless, and some of the produce will be posted shortly.

The Cherry Blossom phenomenon has always fascinated me, and especially as my own 22-hour tree-themed tattoo was finished last month (a flowring pear), I've been playing with patterns more and more.  I was very pleased with the textured-paper and wood design of this piece, as I think it feels like the old Japanese collages made of twigs and driftwood that hang in my kitchen.
