Faded Glory

Katherine Trauger commented on my last magnolia picture that a magnolia tree’s limbs should be trimmed just enough to put a couple of lawn chairs under the tree.  The cool shade and wonderful scent of the flowers makes it a natural air conditioning.  Since today was so hot here, I went and stood under the tree to paint, and the blossom that was in view was past its prime, but a good challenge to render with all the curves of the petals.

This painting is number 100 in my series!


120 Paintings

“It takes 120 bad paintings to know something about painting.”  –  Larry Seiler as quoted by Jeff Mahorney in his blog

Each painting is small in format and should be completed in about an hour or less.

My goals are to improve my technique, to paint faster, and to gain experience with a variety of subjects.
