In Japan, cherry trees were planted and cultivated for their beauty, for the adornment of the grounds of the nobility of Kyoto, at least as early as 794.

Cherry blossom is an omen of good fortune and is also an emblem of love, affection and represents spring.

Cherry blossoms are an enduring metaphor for the fleeting nature of life, and as such are frequently depicted in art. (info source Wikipedia)

    & yes, please be in touch… can give you plenty of Japanese images to use for references for future images too :)) but it looks like you don’t need it with the likes of this beautiful image :)) xx

  • lol…yes, I realise now :) thank you so much d xxx
    i googled cherry blossoms to see how they really look, but mine are not true to form, they are just stylised version to suit me really, i never really do anything exactly as is, but try to take the image into my mind and redraw it the way i see things lol :) it’s a very kind offer, thank you so much :) xx
