I grew up in Japan where the cherry trees were abundant. One went to go see and picnic under the cherry blossoms as a spring ritual.  My friend from Tokyo sent along a photo of a magnificent tree which I used as reference.  The sides are painted with a solid turquoise color and this painting comes wired, ready to hang.

Getting to Know Judy

Originally from Japan, Judy Mackey embarked upon her professional artistic career over a decade ago after connecting with a local artist. He taught her how to skillfully wield a palette knife instead of a paintbrush, which gave rise to her own stylistic development. Judy uses this technique to create heavy texture. Her medium of choice is oil paint, with which she enjoys mixing and creating new colors with limited pigments. Her work glows with sweet simplicity in a painterly, impressionistic style.
