Sweet Magnolia

I have switched gears..and decided to paint some beautiful magnolias for an exhibition I am having in Washingto DC this winter.

I saw these magnolias blooming in Tower Grove Park in June. The blossoms are so magnificent -- attracting bees and fragrant.

I love doing this .... and am currently working on a companion piece to go with it.
