The Arrival of Sakura / by Diane Ngo

It has been a very dreary and wet Winter and Spring for us here in the Bay Area. I was inspired by a recent photographed that my friend, Mandy Chang, posted on her Instagram feed. One of the good fruits that can come from a lot of rain, are amazing blossoms in our gardens and vegetation. Since December, I have been tinkering with Japanese brush pen work to create more movement, as you can see from the Descanso Gardens and Ha Long Bay pieces. Here is the third in this series appropriately titled, "The Arrival of Sakura". Sakura is Japanese for cherry blossoms which signals the arrival of spring captured by the bright colors and color combinations of pinks blues and greens in this marker and pen ink work. This 11" x 14" original work is now available for purchase. Drop me an email if you are interested. The highest bidder will get this piece. All proceeds go to support André Kajlich RAAM 2017 campaign. Thank you for your support!
