Number 11 in my 30 in 30 challenge and today I looked around the studio and noticed I have several tubes of Pink paint so I decided to do something with it. Not always a fan of this color I envisioned things in pink to inspire a painting. Then I remembered the cherry tree in our yard when I was a young girl. When the blossoms arrived I got excited thinking of the coming season of plenty. My mom made the best pies, and jars of cherry jam each season. I would help her pit the fruit, my hands staining red. My dad would put a tent of cheese cloth over the tree because the birds loved those cherries as much as we did. In July I would climb into the tree and help him pick buckets of fruit. To think it all started with those Cherry Blooms.
Sometimes inspiration comes from days past and today I am feeling that Pink is my favorite color; because it brought back such a sweet memory of my mom and dad.
