Figure with Magnolia

When the magnolia trees bloom, I want to become one with the tree, the blossoms, and the scent, With this painting, I wanted to communicate that yearning. I painted this by first painting the magnolia tree in a landscape orientation, creating the image from an amalgamation of life, photograph, and memory. I then turned that painting to a portrait orientation, and used the branches as the lines of the human body, building the human form out of the tree.
