This is really lovely and i noted your technique with a glue gun... it certainly has added dimension to the piece. The tree is well positioned and a great shape against that background. Excellent colour pallet and overall much impact. A very very nice piece

Ah, this is beautiful! I just went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. Really nice balance of colors, and I especially like what you did at the roots of the tree.

Beautiful creation of textures and patterns in this Spring Cherry Blossom. Gorgeous color palette and brush strokes and blending and shading of colors. Nice are those colors from sunset in the background with Springs lush greenery. A creative and talented art work. Best wishes in the contest. Thanks for sharing.

I love this work of art. First the composition reminds me of the tree of life which I adore and then there are these awesome little cherry blossoms which almost look like little beads. This is very beautiful Danielle.

Danielle, you have created spring spirit here! There is a lot of texture! I like the composition and very creative technique and the combination of the colors! I also like your attention to the details. It looks like evening time just after the sunset. BEAutiful!!!

Comment from Envision

I think this technique was very clever! When I first saw this without reading your notes I thought you glued little pearls onto the tree. The hot glue was genius! It gives the painting wonderful texture that is reminiscent of cherry blossoms. The bark looks good too. I might have to try this technique :)

Quite an imaginative handling of the medium. Skillful rendition! An interesting initial impact. Pinkish overtone of blossoms in varying hues.
An impressive artwork rendition. Good luck!

Comment from Christine Rohr

Hi Danielle, I think this is very creative. You have exemplified what I love about this site. The glue gun idea is brilliant. The textures from your blossoms, limbs and trunk is unique. The composition is well done and the tree is effective against the neutral sky. This good by a signature type of piece. Very well done.

You are creative. Your unusual technique is interesting and sufficient.
The pink painted glue looks indeed like blossoms. The painting has pleasant colors which characterizes the spring season nicely. It also has a good perspective [view to the horizon]. The painting is balanced. The tall format emphasizes the grow of the tree.
