"In the cherry blossom's shade
There is no such thing as a stranger."
- ISSA -
This spring I spent many hours in the 
evenings photographing the cherry 
blossoms in my backyard. 
These are some of my favorite 
photos because the blossoms in
the foreground are crisp and clear while
 the background remains out of focus.

Leonardo da Vinci 
was an Italian painter and a genius in many realms of science. 
He is best known for two paintings: the "Mona Lisa" and "The Last Supper." 
The famous artist died in Amboise, France, on May 2, 1519. 
I thought I would share a couple of his quotes about art.

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, 
and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” 

“Art is never finished, only abandoned”
