Big Magnolia

I first made this flower blossom series in 1995 because of a request/commission from the NC Writers Network. They wanted an award plaque to give to the inductees into the NC Literary Hall of Fame.  I came up the the idea of a southern magnolia. I made about 9 of them and cringe to think what I got paid for them!

This magnolia will be much larger, about 14x14", a commission for Wake Hospice.
