"Beacon Hill Magnolias" - 6" x 6" - Oil on Canvas

Yet another of my reference photos that I took while hanging out at Beacon Hill Park.  Over by the Heron Rookery there is a grove of magnolia trees.  I know this must be from that grove because there was an apartment building in the background.  There was also masses of branches, smaller blossoms and leaves.  I really wanted the magnolias to stand alone and be the star of the show, so I simplified the background down to this.  I tried a few other ones, but I like this the best of all!
