Swamp Magnolia, Linda C. Miller

Here is a piece from The Williamsburg Botanical Garden. I just added the final touches and it will be on exhibit this January at This Century Art Gallery in Williamsburg.

What I love most about painting plant portraits is one-- I learn so much about each plant's morphology and two-- since picking this specimen - I have found five trees growing just off the marsh on the Greensprings Trail that I walk regularly. So its common name is perfect, for its native habitat is a wetland!
