I love sakura trees, no mater of what piece of art I'm working on I sometimes end up trying to fit sakura petals somewhere in it and then an idea ocurred to me that perhaps I could do a picture concentrated on Sakura trees only or on the tree itsellf and then this came up.
To explain the piece now, the girl, you might be wondering what the girl means or perhaps if you have yet to catch the tittle and match it with her transparent hand upon the tree trunk. I wanted to represent what a soul or spirit of a Sakura Tree would look like and I pictured it this way, an innocent yet playful elven maiden with bright pink eyes and hair and with pink lips, and there you have her. As for the sakuras on the tree, it was a real pain to make them, I do the petals but it's hard for me to do the flower itself.
Well anyway ^^ Thank you all for your view and I hope you like this piece.
