Description of "Redondo Beach Cherry Blossom Tree"
This is a painting of a lavender cherry blossom tree at the Redondo Beach Marina during the sunset hours. The sky is painted with various shades of peach, pink, yellow and purple representing a typical Southern Californian sunset. The water in the back of the wall reflects the beautiful sunset. The cherry blossom tree looks magical with it's strong dark roots and trunk branching out with lots of cherry blossom flowers that are lined with a shiny gold color. The cherry blossom flowers are lavender with a yellow circular center with speckled stamens. Each cherry blossom is gold lined with a gold Art Decco gold paint pen; I love the gold shimmer as you look at the painting from a different angle.
Inspiration for "Redondo Beach Cherry Blossom Tree"
My inspiration for painting this purple cherry blossom tree comes from my good friend that I have known for a long time. This was her wedding gift. This cherry blossom painting has the backdrop of the Redondo Beach Marina, which is the location of her wedding reception at the Portofino Hotel. The colors of the cherry blossoms, lavender and yellow are her wedding colors. The big tree silhouetted against the sunset symbolizes strong roots and a beautiful strong relationship and the flowers are blossoms of happiness sprouting for the couple. Redondo Beach has always been a romantic setting and a relaxing place to have a date and eat great seafood. On a regular beautiful sunny Southern California day at Redondo Beach, you'll also find lots of fisherman fishing, brown pelicans scouting out fish that the fisherman has tossed out, great seafood restaurants, kayakers, gondola rides, and maybe you might even spot seals in the water!
