Wise Magnolia


Oil by Briana Serna
⏤ 11 in x 14 in, Framed

“Walking through the streets of downtown Saint Augustine, I couldn’t help but stop at this magnificent tree. It stands at the North end of Charlotte Street, watching over the bustling life that takes place below. Who knows how long it has been there, but it looks ancient, and wise. Painting it led me to contemplate all the moments it must have seen over its years. In just one day painting it, I saw people get ready for a wedding, families enjoying an afternoon stroll, people on their way to work, visitors in tiny cars buzzing around town, shopkeepers tending to their buildings, food service workers taking a rest after a long shift, and a delightful medley of animals enjoying the sunny day. I’d bet that magnolia tree could write volumes.”
