A young Japanese boy beseeches the wise spirits of the cherry blossom tree to help him find his lost friend. Petals and magic swirl around him in the glowing moonlight as he stands under the ancient tree wearing an intricate hakama.
Artist Notes: This image is a long awaited follow up for my older Dragon Blossom piece. I was inspired by all the flowering trees her in springtime Virginia. I was really pushing with this image to create a sense of focus on the boy and spirits and a sense of space an depth with the ancient cherry blossom tree.
