This is a new Autumn Butterfly Fairy Door Painting I did for my mom to post on her door. It's a sign that reminds guests to remove their shoes before entering, as it is customary to do in Chinese households. This painting was done with mixed mediums: watercolor, gouache, color pencils, salt, sticker lettering, Swarovski crystals, lace, and gold trimming. Hope you like it!

Description of "Dreamy Clouds"
This is a dreamy cherry blossom painting with puffy pink and white clouds with a pretty purple butterfly. A pink and lavender cherry blossom tree lies in front. The colors are very light and cheerful; it's like a clip from a child's imagination or dream. The cherry blossoms are painted two dimensionally representing Japanese cherry blossoms (sakuras) during the spring. The style of this painting reminds me of Japanese anime movies and manga.
Inspiration for "Dreamy Clouds"
The inspiration for my "Dreamy Clouds" painting comes from Caribe Playa located in Patillas, Puerto Rico. It is a pristine beach in the southeastern coast of Puerto Rico. The puffy pink clouds are so dreamy in this little cove. It's an unspoiled beach with tropical breezes and pelicans flying in the sky. A nice resort to stay right on this beach is the Caribe Playa Beach Resort. You can lie in their hammocks, swim in their pool and jacuzzi and have great virgin pina coladas and authentic Puerto Rican food. There is so much humidity in Puerto Rico, that the clouds there are puffy white with shades of pink, purple, orange during the sunset hours depending on the time of the year. The 2 pictures of the clouds at Patillas are taken about half an hour apart showing how the colors change during the sunset hours. The cherry blossoms that I paint come in various shapes, colors, designs that don't really exist in nature or don't really exist in certain parts of the world. That is the artistic beauty of painting, I can superimpose beautiful cherry blossom trees and flowers to any place and time from my imagination or from a place in the world I have traveled to.

Description of "Mother's Day Gift"
This is a purple pink sunset cherry blossom painting with various lavender shades of cherry blossoms. There are 3 large dark lavender cherry blossoms in the middle surrounded by smaller light lavender cherry blossoms. The background is a blue purplish sky with a pink sunset. I used very vibrant magenta, purple and yellow colors for this cherry blossom painting. This painting is painted three dimensionally giving texture to the cherry blossoms and branches. This would make a great Mother's Day gift or gift for your mother or grandma for her birthday. It looks best framed with a burgundy red wood on the wall to match the branch color.
Inspiration for "Mother's Day Gift"
I created this purple pink sunset cherry blossom painting for my boyfriend's mom for Mother's Day. Purple is her favorite color so I decided to paint lavender cherry blossoms because I think that a painting of flowers will last longer than live cut flowers or plants. Below are several lavender flowers taken at The Flower Fields (in Carlsbad, CA) or in my neighbor's front yards of purple daisies or flowers that inspired me to paint these lavender cherry blossoms. I like the dark interior wisps of purple on the flower petals.
