" MY SPIRIT "

                                               8  x  11  Pen , Ink & Tombow

I was smelling this heavenly fragrance to realize it came from the top of this tree , I just love Magnolia and their scent mesmerizes me.
A more detail and colorful rendition is on it's way...........

Really lovely. You're a magician with that tombow pen, Dominique. Our magnolia doesn't have a super strong scent (unless my sniffer isn't working properly--which could be!)
Looking forward to seeing your color rendition, too.

Thanks L.Holm I did not realize their scent until the one I found in my landlords yard.

Great! You seem to be really enjoying the tom bows!

Adebanji ,
Yes I do, but I feel like I haven't yet taken them to my limit. in terms of strokes style with them. On a side note they seem to eat my paper if I go over an area more than ounce, does that happen for you also ?

I don't know what color this magnolia blossom is, but the white ones are stunning. An appropriate post title from someone with a "great spirit!"

The white ones are my favorites too as is this one. Thank you for such a nice compliment.

Yes Dominique, this happens to me too, so I use very heavy paper when using it exetensively.

This is lovely, Dominique! Great composition and values. I grew up in Calif. with a Magnolia tree in our front yard. They are such amazing flowers. Can't wait to see your colored version!

Whew, Dominique..great to have a bit of good Internet service. It looks like you have really been busy while I have been country-hopping...It looks great. Magnolias are such nice subjects..my Mom's favorite. I really thank you for your dear and encouraging comments while I've been in limbo...it means a lot to me.
