This is a study I did today for a much larger painting. I love old live oak trees with their expressive branches.   This one is silhouetted against the sun so it is even more dramatic than usual.  I can't wait to start a much larger detailed version!

Wonderful backlit study. Gorgeous color! I can just see this big! And thinking really big?:)

Dottie, you have captured the structure of a live oak tree so well. The branches that almost hug the ground and provide shelter to so many animals trying to beat the summer heat. Anxious to see you larger painting!
