"Majestic Oak" ©

This field is up Bouquet Canyon and is a favorite of mine to paint. I wish I could talk with the Oak and find out her story. While painting my mind wanders and wonders. An arborist told me that the Oaks in our valley can be hundreds of years old and many were planted by the Indians. What a story this Majestic Oak keeps secret.

Really nice work. It reminds me of the landscapes of George Inness. The composition, colors, textures...all right on!
