Happy Mother's Day! Pink Saucer Magnolia Descanso Gardens Photograph & Tulip Flower Sketch...



I took this photograph of pink saucer magnolia flowers at Descanso Gardens during a trip with my mother.  My mother is one of the best people I know.  I am very fortunate!  I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day...


This is a sketch of a tulip that may or may not go into a still life painting for my mother that I am playing with the notion of.


I am also participating in Sunday Sketches.  To view more Sunday Sketches, please visit:
