A Celebration of Spring
“Celebrating the almond blossom in a painting immortalises the fragile blossom, reminding us of how precious life is. I see the blossoms; I contemplate the path of the petals as they leave the branches and become part of the sky. Each petal is free, transported by the wind to a destiny not known, not planned, in the hands of the Holy Spirit. I shall not want, I say to myself. I paint. I become the almond blossom. I celebrate. And then the earth receives the petals. It was so short, but it is not over. The almond will come.“
