EDM April19 cherry blossoms and tiny drawings

The wild cherry that was torn apart by a hurricane then further damaged by a freak blizzard in October, is gallantly blossoming again. I notice that a single branch of a cherry seen horizontally as in nature looks like a branch, and the same image seen vertically, looks like a whole tree. I imagine this is related to fractals in some way.

The other little ink and wash pieces are about four inches square, just using up the end of a sheet of Arches, on vignettes seen across the street from my back patio.

As always,click to enlarge.

Nice sketches. I love the touch of color and your are right depending on the orientation it either looks like a branch or a whole tree.

your cherry branch is very nice (I would like to say more, but my english is too poor. It's very frustrating to not be able to tell what you want)
