New Impressionistic Spring Blossoms tree landscape painting Svetlana Novikova

I just finished this piece.  It was done with acrylics on canvas.   I used brushes and palette knife. 

I was drawn to the freshness of blossoms and play of light and color in a reference image, and I wanted to portray the feeling of spring and joy in my painting.

It measures 24"x30", sides are painted. 

It's currently exhibiting at Quattro Gallery in Austin, TX.  Please visit http://www.quattrogallery.com/ for more information.  Opening reception is this Friday, September 30th - 7-10pm.
