Magnified Magnolia (pastel) by Polly Castor

Inspired by the forms in nature, I’ve long appreciated the sinuous forms of magnolia petals and the luminous way light shimmers through their velvety surface. This painting I’ve been incubating for a long time, and am so glad to finally have painted it.

The painting is large (22″x30″) and done in pastel. You can see the entire work above and close up photos below.

I’m so grateful for magnolias in spring!


I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
