What says fall better than a majestic old oak tree by the roadside? Some may think fall has to be captured in large expanses of color. The old oak, standing by the road, obviously having a limb removed during its lifetime, has seen many seasons and changes take place around it. The road was most likely dirt with wagon ruts where it is now paved. Children may have climbed this old giant to see what they could from atop while there was still an expansive field. Each season the leaves change without fail restarting the cycle every spring until the true colors of the old oak can shine again.
This painting, done in watercolor, has been mounted on a panel, sealed, and varnished with a UV protectant. This eliminates the need for matting and glass.
