An Old Citizen


Old Tree, 8x8" Oil on Canvas
There is something solid, stately, so valuable about trees... especially old trees. You just wonder what all they've witnessed in their standing in place over time. This one is reminiscent of many old gnarled trees of the area where I grew up. I hoped to capture the uneven surface, the twisted limbs, the widespreading reach that casts a wide blanket of shade. As with any "old citizen" - respect is due.

What a tranquil and soothing painting. I can almost feel the shade under the old limbs. I love tall old trees so much. You've created a wonderful piece of art! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage
