The lovely sakura blossom: light and delicate, sweet and simple, exotic and just lovely. When I came across this painting, I truly thought it was a photograph until I found it wasn't.

"Sakura" shows a great applied amount of amassed knowledge of color and technique. Each petal is painted with such accuracy to simply take my breath away. Detail is not skimped out on, nothing is compromised--not color, not feeling. The blurred background is surprisingly effective at adding subtle depth to the painting and framing the clear blossoms without stealing the show. Simple, but it works so well. Everything seems to be put just where it was intended in the first place to recreate Mother Nature's work. Just look. Count how many shades are used in each flower. Can you count them all?

The observer may often overlook just how much painstaking effort an artist puts into their work. The world does not always reward us based on our effort; I'm sure many of us have had that feeling before--of not having our work appreciated as much as it should--and no one likes it. Enjoy the simple miracles as they come to you. So this will be my simple miracle of today.

Congratulations on this beautiful accomplishment!

Wow, I do like this painting.

The balance is wonderful with just enough in the background to stop the painting being flat, but not too much to draw attention away from the main subject.

The colours are excellent with the light rendered so well across the flowers. Good detail but not overly stark.

If I could change one thing it would be the flower in the shade to the right, it is just a little too flat somehow, I would like to see it turned just a little more in the direction of the other flowers, or some more light across it to give it some depth. I also think it would improve the composition balance as at the moment there is a very bright line running vertically almost in the middle of the painting and some brightness in the right hand side of that dark flower would balance the lightness of the bud in the upper left.

Even the matt and framing sets it off, carrying the pinks through, but being very simple.

Outstanding! Wonderful use of blurring in the background to give depth to the painting and to make the foreground pop.
