Concrete Magnolias

I know this is a strange name, but what inspired me to paint these two paintings was actually the look of concrete in the vase and the background…

I love the look of concrete… neutral grays…taupes…

And I love the way the branches look in winter and the first budding of new life in spring.

Sometimes life can seem bleak and hopeless, but there is always hope…

” Faith, hope and love, these three…” 1 Corinthians 13:13

…always a light at the end of the tunnel… always sunshine after the storm…

These paintings can hang together or separately…
