Lilac is popular. Most Chinese parks have rows of lilac along the walkways. The fragrance is intoxicating. I've tried to keep most of these lessons simple but still include all the features of the subject in a good composition. I want to show the unique nature of each subject and why it is wonderful to express with brush strokes. In this composition, I feel the joy of spring.
