Art Statement: For this painting’s inspiration, I had originally taken pictures of a lovely branch, heavy with Magnolia blossoms. I had played with the photograph settings until everything was grey-scale except for the flowers. I set out to create a similar effect in my painting allowing the flowers to really pop, while leaving the majority of the painting (in my version of) greyscale. I love the look – every time I see this painting, I am reminded of how sculptural and inviting the magnolia blossoms are. The almost beckon you to touch them.
