Every year I get slightly obsessed with the Blackthorn blossom. This painting is this years result. A mixed media piece using acrylic paint and gold leaf, I love how the bright white flowers can sing out against a dark hedgerow with small flashes of light coming through the thicket. So called ribbons because the stem of flowers look to me like ribbons of light through the hedgerow.
