Another Magnolia

My Magnolia 6″ x 6″ oil on canvas panel
I know…another magnolia, but my tree is blooming, and I’m completely enamoured with it it right now. I love magnolia trees. I’m baffled by the huge blossoms, like some tropical flower. Their smell, so much like the sweetest tulips, and how the petals litter the ground like fragrant snow. I remember clearly the first time I saw one…I was probably already 12 or so, and had never seen anything like it. I don’t think they grow in Quesnel.  I was in Kelowna, walking down my grandpa’s street, and the neighbour had one that was blooming. I remember standing and staring…the neighbour probably thought I was off my rocker. 🙂
This one will be going on ebay Sunday, May 22, at around 6.
Bye for now.

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo. In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...
