Art takes a Back Seat

I have had a very distracting time from my painting this past couple of weeks with some of it giving me stress that affected my desire and ability to paint. All is sorted now with the wonderful arrival of our first grandson which is so exciting and secondly the news that my Mum has recovered sufficiently from her illness in London and can now fly home to Australia, so once again my mind is filled with happiness and this certainly promotes better art results.

This is the only piece I have painted in this time and these fragrant Magnolia blooms I spotted at Mt. Barker whilst driving through to the hospital last week. We stopped on the way back and Ian took some photos for me to use for reference. I love Magnolia and have painted my own garden white blooms twice before and probably will many more times. 


  1. This is really lovely, Lorraine.

    Glad to hear your Mum is on the mend.


  2. This is gorgeous. Glad to see your 'organic' flair is painting again. Also glad your Mum is doing better.

  3. Thank you Vicki and Laura glad you like my Magnolia and also thanks for your wishes re my Mum
