Live Oak

Live Oak, 5x7", watercolor, pen & ink
This small watercolor is a part of our new show at the Garden District Gallery, "The Calligraphy of Trees". Live oak trees in south Louisiana are truly marvels of nature. I so enjoy drawing them -  following the calligraphic routes of their trunks and branches. This study is of a live oak found in City Park, home to many oaks that are over 600 years old. Quite a humbling experience to stand in their midst.
