Blossom out of the darkness

During lock-down I found myself house bound just as I was about to embark on a series of large oil paintings in the studio.

So I had to scale down and actually reflect on the momentous shock of world-wide lock down and isolation. I found myself turning to nature in the form of blossom once again; I have spend much of my life chasing and celebrating the blossoms.
