"Magnolia" 24x24

oil on panel

The magnolia blossom tops my list of favorite flowers. The sheer size is impressive but upon close inspection it is as delicate as they come.

This is a show stopper! It's all here, beautiful composition and subject matter, dramatic shadows & light, the attention to details where it counts the most and the sheer size of it creates even greater impact. LOVE IT!!!!

What a pleasure this painting is to see. I love those fascinating magnolia blossoms too... so creamy white and waxy strong. You've captured the essence of their beauty in this piece!

A fantastic painting! It is so clean and fresh looking. It makes a statement about what true beauty is. There is so much to enjoy with the detail and subtleties in light and shadow...I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that this is an amazing painting from a very gifted artist.

I love the way you handle light! I'm curious- how many hours do you put into a painting like this?
