May Magnolia




















We have an enormous Magnolia tree blooming like crazy in our front yard. It has been fun to watch the activities in this tree since we got here. We had a huge nest filled with baby Blue Jays the day we moved in, lots of squirrels and the blossoms themselves provide us with great entertainment!

As I sit and sip my mint julip on the front porch...that's the way I see it!

Great sketch, Lisa! Painting white objects is quite a challenge, but no problem for you I see. And, magnolia's are my favorite tree: I'm jealous!

I'm following along with you and your journey(s). It isn't everyday I meet someone who, like me, moved from Martinez, CA., to Texas.

I like your work. My wife loves Magnolias - none in sight where we live.

Great painting Lisalou.
I have a magnolia in my back garden too. Its big fat hairy buds are a sure sign that spring is on its way. Now it is just a big whoosh green.
Keep drawing and painting.
