"Through these lush lavender landscapes. Lanino shares a vibe that is at once soothing and joyous. The trees seem to be welcoming us back to nature after too many months indoors"
In mid May, I start my annual tradition of jacaranda tree flower watching. While originally from South America, these trees bloom here in my neighborhood of Los Angeles, California from mid May to early July.
These paintings are inspired by my son Dylan and his love of nature. Since moving to LA from NYC some years ago, I have noticed these blossoms magically appear annually, right around the time of my son’s birthday and Mother’s day.
I continue to paint this tree in a series of theme and variation that I have been working on for over a decade now. I remember seeing the jacaranda tree for the first time when we lived in on the west side, and I continue to enjoy seeing them now in the San Fernando Valley as well. My creative spark is when the jacaranda trees bloom and purple blossoms fill the sky.
Jacaranda II is composed of nine 12" x 12" canvases. It can be displayed together as a unit and also spaced one inch apart, as you can see on my website, to make a 38" x 38" piece. If you’re interested in purchasing a painting just email me.
