Featured painting of the week – “Magnolia”

I’m featuring a different painting each week.  To start this series off, I present to you Magnolia, an oil painting I created in May 2014.  This painting was inspired by photos I took of some lovely Magnolia trees in a city park in Manhattan. The color palette is very simple: white, black, green, pink and blue. The painting is 12 inches square and the composition is very much about the square (the square being a favorite motif of mine over the past several years).
