I make an artwork every year on the anniversary of my father's passing: April 15. This was my piece for 2019 when I was being treated (and it looks like, cured) of throat cancer. Also, I was born in Paducah Kentucky, and one of the things it is known for is the annual Dogwood Trail, which is like the Sakura festivals in Japan, where people walk on paths through the flowering trees.
