Seventh aquarelle : Cherry blossom tree branch

Seventh aquarelle : Cherry blossom tree branch

24 August 2017

 

I am back to my initial challenge of 10 aquarelles and have taken as subject a cherry blossom branch given the recent synchronicity on cherry trees. This time I combined alla prima type of painting with wet on dry painting.

 

It occurred to me that just looking at pink made me cheerful. Perhaps that is where the French saying « voir le monde avec des lunettes roses » (meaning looking at the world with rose-coloured glasses) comes from  🙂

 

I hope you will enjoy the painting and the typical song I thought would accompany it well.

Sheer beauty

Your sun in my rain

The trickle

Of rainlight

Feeding us the dewdrops slight

Trace for our pillows

 

Highs and lows

Tears of sorrow ne’er

Old veneer

Covets fear

The brush a stroke of glazing

Sun soaked frames lazing

 

Lizard stance

Our bodies slow dance

Shimmering

Quivering

Into remnants of the sheen

Hands with fingers keen

 

The unseen

Plays upon mindsets

Carved in stone

Forged alone

Invisible touch now prone

To garner pure doubt

 

Loud and stout

Cherry lips twitching

Rolled in pout

Rules to flout

Amusement a new party

The laugh now hearty

 

Pure delight

The glimpse of your sight

Conjoining

Lines forming

Heart no longer deforming

Shadows of our kiss
