The Old Oak

This huge old Valley Oakgrows right outside my bedroom window. I spotted a good composition by photographing just a couple of branches. I am always drawn to the moss which appears on the tree in Winter (this is California, so we don't get snow here). Contrasting the green moss with a red background brings the tree front and center. The moon in the background is a whimsical touch I decided to add.
The original, done in pastels laid on top of the enlarged photo, has sold. But the prints are done on the highest quality satin canvas and appear every bit like an oil painting. The colors are deep, brilliant, and non-fading. For framing, no glass is needed, so there is no problem with glass reflection. You can contact me if you are interested in a size other than what I listed below.l
