I want to give a plug for some stunning new cherry blossom paintings by an amazingly talented local artist and friend, Jo Edwards. If you’ve been following this site for a while, you would have seen some of Jo’s work before–she created the artwork that used to be featured on the front page of this site for several years.
Jo has recently completed a beautiful new series of pieces inspired by blossoms (including the cherry blossoms). They’re using acrylic and molding paste, and the effect is really striking.
You can see the full series, find more information on these beautiful original works, and check out the incredible detail and texture in them on Jo’s website.
