Not sure what it is...



...but I loved how it looked. Another flowering tree but I never see any fruit.

It was just the perfect excuse to use opera.

Lee, I don't even know what flower it is, but it's nice and well done, I'd call it "pink"!

Oh my! You should learn the names of these beautiful flowers you paint!
A good source to look them up is:

If it has flowers but never fruit then it's most likely an Ornamental Cherry tree. They have 5 petals for each flower with many long yellow stamen in the center.

If you embellished the details and the original actually only had 4 petals then it could be a dogwood tree:

If you list this one on Etsy be sure to use the tag 'sakura' (in addition to cherry and blossom). Sakura is the Japanese word for Cherry blossom and many people would search for it by that.
