DSC_1231 (3) Distant Oak smaller

The United States Arboretum has some very old trees.  The oak tree in this painting is very large and old.  Surrounded by crepe myrtles, the actual tree stands like a proud old man in a dense crowd.

I guess in my painting, though, it becomes a festive tree — almost the life of the vegetal party.  The trees are ready to riot for joy. All the trees clap their hands.  It’s a glad day.

And all the paths to lead to the big old tree.  The bright yellow light takes you right to it.
