Sakura Hanami

“People think their world will get smaller as they get older. My experience is just the opposite. Your senses become more acute. You start to blossom. (Yoko Ono)

Sakura Hanami: Japanese for “cherry blossom flower viewing”. During the springtime in High Park in Toronto, this is one of the most anticipated events of the season. I experienced it for the first time this year. It was spectacular! This watercolour is an attempt to capture that experience. With the weather calling for sun but with the chance of showers, many in the crowd had colourful umbrellas to cover all eventualities. They seemed to echo the canopies of blossoms.
