Blackthorn Blossom

Spring is marching on, excuse the pun, and it’s almost time for the blackthorn to blossom. I painted this large canvas of a blackthorn bush on location above the Stour Valley over a couple days. It is 36 x 36 inches in oil on canvas and it’s currently available from Island Fine Arts.
