Magnolia

Magnolia
oil on panel

By American artist, born of French parents, John La Farge
(1835-1910)
via here
Painter, stained glass maker, decorator and writer...for a fascinating look into this artist's inspiration see his sketchbooks here.  A collection held by the Yale University Art Gallery...from his journey to the South Seas in August of 1890.  

The website design and interactivity alone worth a look.  Pencil on paper, art in simplest form...brilliantly presented with today's technology.

JOHN LA FARGE'S
1890-1891





Like that in the La Farge's painting...a single magnolia blossom floating in a bowl of water.  



Picked this morning, it's already starting to fall apart.  Its beauty matched only by it fragility.

thanks Loi. The girls are out of school and counting the hours until the pool opens on Sat....I am counting calories until then.

Can't wait to see the Southern Living shoot!

An enormous magnolia tree grew in front of my Aunt Mary's yard on 2nd street in Louisville. I believe it is still there but she used to complain about "what a mess" those blossoms made.
It is one of my favorite flowers and what kind of better camera did you get?

Patricia....my Grandmother had a beautiful tree that she also said made a mess. Went for a visit once and she had had it cut down!!!

Just upgraded my Nikon...D5100. My husband's department...very happy with his selection.
