Oil on Belgian Linen
Painting the small 6×6″ magnolia was so enjoyable i just HAD to paint them in oil. The petals of the western Mags can be as large as you hand yet delicate to the touch and bruise easily. They don’t live of the tree very long and become very fragile. I let things happen in my setups and as i painted. Each flower or group determined its own flow in design, movement and color as they aged during the process. I hoped to capture that lusciousness, strength and the process of beauty, life and age.
