The beautiful things of the earth become more dear as they elude pursuit.  — Thomas Hardy, Desperate Remedies

I've never painted a magnolia but recently had a request for a painting of one. The only trouble is I don't have a magnolia tree in my yard.  I thought about sneaking over to my next door neighbor's yard and stealing—er, I mean, uh—borrowing one. ; ) The trouble was I couldn't figure out how in the world I would explain it if I got caught in the middle of the night 20 feet off the ground in my pajamas." However, my friend Patty came to the rescue and gave me one from her tree. The blossom was pristine and in a tight bud, but by the time I got it home— to my utter amazement—it had completely opened. Wow! Things do grow fast around here! I shot some quick reference photos and was glad I did. The next day the beautiful white bloom had turned completely brown and left in its wake only a magnolia memory

Thanks for stopping by for a spell to sniff my magnolia.
