In the spring the Ume (plum blossoms) are the first to bloom in Japan, they are less flamboyant then the Sakura (cherry blossoms) and the trees are usually not as tall but they are my absolute favorite! I fondly remember walking through gorgeous Japanese gardens surrounded by hundreds of weeping ume trees in full bloom, the smell is intoxicating! Oh how I miss those days! While I was painting this piece the snow was piled high outside my studio in Canada but at the same time, in Japan, people were walking these same pathways, smelling those smells. Every time I would think of this I felt a pang of longing but having this piece on my easel reconnected me with the places I had to leave behind.
