“Teresa, just wanted to let you know that the painting arrived and it’s absolutely phenomenal!! Thank you again.” — K. Burke, Erie PA
This painting is of the Magnolia Grandiflora, commonly known as the southern magnolia or bull bay. These large, showy flowers grow on trees native to East Texas and several other southern and southeastern states. The trees have large, glossy leaves and huge, fragrant white blossoms. Their sweet-smelling flowers are considered an emblem of feminine sweetness and beauty.
Magnolias are often a favorite subject matter for many artists. They are certainly a favorite flower of mine. I was drawn to how the light hit this Magnolia’s pedals and immediately knew I wanted to do a painting of this magnificent flower.
