Sir Winston's Magnolias

Sir Winston Churchill was a devoted painter. He felt it took the mind away from worries. He did several paintings of magnolias so I did this in his honor. One exercise he recommended was to study and devour a picture, and then, without looking at it again, attempt the next day to reproduce it.....great observation and memory training. His book "Painting as a Pastime" is an interesting read. This 5-3/4"x 8" oil on gallery-wrap canvas is available for $150 on my website
