The iconic Cherry Blossoms of Washington, D.C. in their peak bloom. The Japanese term Hanami translates literally to flower viewing and refers to the enjoyment of the transient beauty of flowers. The National Cherry Blossom Festival in late March / early April attracts 1.5 million visitors a year to experience the estimated 3800 Cherry trees. Visitors will find mostly Yoshino Cherry Trees, but also Kwanzan, Akebono, Usuzumi, and a handful of other varieties. The cherry trees in bloom which mark the first real sign of spring in the area along with the potential for nice weather make it a pleasure for tourists and locals alike to get out and enjoy downtown Washington, D.C.
Taken from a rooftop near the Tidal Basin, my goal with this crop of a larger panoramic image was to convey the entire scene during the DC Cherry Blossom fervor. Not a large city like New York with a plethora of tall buildings as far as the eye can see; D.C. is filled with many unique sites which make up the cohesive whole of D.C. and its surrounding area. While the obvious subjects are the many flowering blossoms of the cherry trees lining the path to the Jefferson Memorial; one can also enjoy views of Arlington, Virginia, across the Potomac River, the Air Force Memorial, Pentagon, Arlington Cemetery, and the myriad people from all over the world that come to Washington, D.C. to enjoy the ephemeral beauty of the peak bloom of the Cherry Blossoms.

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone.
