There are two magnolia trees that tower over a graveyard in my neighborhood. Looming over the entrance to the graveyard, they act as gatekeepers to the home of those that have gone on to their heavenly homes. The trees beckon the living to come visit their lovingly departed loved ones. These magnolia trees produce such beautiful, creamy flowers that seem to glisten against the backdrop of the richly green, dense leaves. This magnolia was painted with liquid acrylics.

Below are some of the magnolia flowers from the two magnolia tress towering above the graveyard. Such beautiful pics. I tried to capture the buttery softness of the petals in my painting. It is a challenge that I will continue to pursue.
