2011 Magnolia Study

After waiting so patiently for them, I had begun to think they had all frozen.
Coming home from the barbershop the other day, I stopped by a florist to see if they had any and the shop was closed.
As I turned onto my street I saw a small tree beginning to bloom in a forlorn corner of a strip mall. I walked back with my pruning shears, cut off three blossoms, laid them on a table and painted this.
I think it would make a great Hawaiian shirt.

We're having a cold snap today, so it's back into winter coats. I see a few buds, one or two forsythia bushes have blossomed, and some cherry trees, but the magnolias are not yet ready.

And you're right, as a repeated pattern, it would make a fantastic Hawaiian shirt!

I'd like to see it as a long, luscious, silk scarf.
