Autumn Oak Morning

Autumn Oak, Morning
18 x 24" oil

First in the Oak Tree series, this painting sold the second time it was shown. The backlit leaves against the shadowed hillside and evaporating morning mist made this breathtaking scene the inspiration for the series. The composition showcases the tension between the line of the hill and the lower limbs of the sprawling oak, and the challenges of depicting the trees behind it.
