I don’t usually participate in Photo Friday, but this week’s theme of “pink” fit with a picture I already had on hand, taken in 2004. I can hardly wait until these lovelies bloom again this year. It is a tulip magnolia and I found this one growing at a house in Pasadena. I stood on the sidewalk and just shot like mad, hoping that the homeowner wouldn’t mind. I was intending them as reference photos to paint from, which I’m still going to do – and maybe quite soon.

    Beautiful photo! The petals look like sails on a sailboat. Magnolias are some of my favorite flowers but I’ve never heard of this type.

    Yes, this would be perfect for one of your botanical paintings. :o) I have one of these magnolias in my garden – no flowers at the moment though as it is high summer here, so it’s just a mass of foliage. Great photo Karen. :o)
