White oak - finished!

Still searching for a title, but it's done! I loved every minute of painting this tree.

Fantabuloso! I know how hard trees are to paint. I like all the orange you found in it.

How about "White Oak" or "This Tree"?

Beautiful! (I immediately thought of "Lone Oak" a community not too far from us in Kentucky)... Lovely blog! I have just discovered you, and I'm a new follower!
Best,
Anne ♥

Je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais j'aurais donné comme titre à cette magnifique peinture : "le maître d'école", tant on sent la puissance et l'art de montrer qu'on peut grandir avec droiture. Un arbre fascinant. Je l'aime beaucoup.
je suis heureuse de l'admirer achevé !...
Gros bisous

Here's a translation of Martine's comment:
I do not know why, but I would have given the title of this wonderful painting, "the schoolmaster," as one feels the power of art and show that we can grow with equity. A fascinating tree. I like it.
I'm glad to see completed! ...

What a magnificent tree! I love the way the limbs move from white to rust and the way it ties in with the pink trees in the background. At this size, I'm sure it is stunning in person. Would love to see it!
