Not even Solomon in all his glory...

Hi Florals and Botanical Folks,
I don't think I've ever posted here--usually roaming around in figures and landscapes, but there's always a first time. I painted this one specifically for the Magnolia Festival in Durant, Oklahoma. It didn't win anything, but it was an interesting departure for me (and it did sell right after the show!). It's 20x16 oil on canvas. Always happy to get feedback and learn.
Mike

Wonderful serene light. Lovely job on those shiny leaves. Quite scrumptious.

Glorious magnolia. I think they are magnificent flowers and this one is no exception.
