My world seems to spin really fast these days and the one thing that I don't want to happen is for spring blooms to come and go around me without taking the time to capture them. As I was pulling out of the parking lot at work on Thursday, I notice the magnolia bush growing right at eye level. Somehow I remembered to bring my camera with me yesterday so I could take some great close up shots of these beauties as I was inspired to trace or sketch them for designing with. I love the layers of petals extending in many directions and, of course, the pink hues; so soft, so feminine, so sensuous.
I'm working hard in the studio this weekend on my workshop! Hang in there, I know it will be worth it and as soon as I expect to finalize it, I will let you know. It won't be too much longer - promise!!!
Have a wonderful day and remember to take your camera with you to capture all of the wonderful flowers that are blooming right now. You can savor them all year long!
