Magnolia Flowers – Huntington Gardens Oil Painting by Karen Winters

April 28th, 2008

“White Magnolias” 16 x 20 oil on canvas
SOLD at the Art Matters show

The moment I saw these beauties at the Huntington Gardens and Library, I just knew that I had to paint them. They were luminous in the morning light – exactly the kind of subject matter that excites me. This will be one of the paintings that I am bringing to the Art Matters show, which opens this Friday night, May 2 at the Huntington in San Marino. Friday night is a special ticketed event. The show will be open to the general public with gardens admission on Saturday and Sunday. This is also a lot “tighter” than many of the paintings I’ve been doing of late, but the subject matter seemed to require it. I have another botanical which will be there for the show and I’ll post it soon, along with some other paintings.

Last Saturday night I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Gold Medal show of the California Art Club at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. What an exquisite treat to be around such beautiful works. I will be returning many many times in the next few weeks to savor the show while it is still hanging. A number of my painter friends have works in the show. Almost everyone who attended said it was the best one ever.

  6. Karen — these are stunning!! The light just renders the entire piece translucent!!!

    Great good luck with your show — your watercolors and oils have come so far since I first met you 3 years ago — what a glorious collection of work you’ve done!! BRAVA!

  8. OUTSTANDING, Karen. A beautiful painting so well done. We have 3 of these trees in our yard, but different type of blossoms.

  9. This is quite amazing, Karen. Very close to perfection.

  10. The “focus” you’ve achieved on these blooms is marvellous, Karen. The background has plenty of interest but is blurred just enough not to distract the eye.

  11. I love this painting! Probably because it reminds me of something I would do…
