One of my college painting instrucors, Michael Crespo, once told me that a "flower" painting is the hardest painting to pull off. I think he meant that it could be perceived as decorative art or cheesy...Not taken seriously.
Hopefully this painting, done for my sweet mother-in-law, has passed the test. My mother-in law is a true Southern Lady and says that every Southern home should have a painting of a magnolia in it somewhere. So here it is. Happy Mother's day!
