Magnolia Triptych

Magnolia Triptych underway in my Studio
I am midway through a two week holiday, arranged to witness my niece Eliza marrying her sweetheart on Valentine's Day and for a short stint in Canberra to see a map exhibition called "Terra Incognita" at the National Library.  The wedding was sensational and it was great to see friends and family, some visiting from afar.  The map exhibit was amazing too and we bought the book to enjoy at our leisure.

Home at last now, with time to get started on a painting for a lady I work with.  Magnolias hold special meaning for her and this one is a Western Australian Magnolia Grandiflora.  Thus we needed a big painting!  The problem was:  how to fit substrates for such a big painting in my small car?  The solution?  Create a triptych with three smaller panels!  Genius!

  1. Beautiful! I grew up with a large magnolia in the front yard (age 3 to 7) and my grandfather had one in his front yard, too. Good memories.


please share a thought......
