Hidden Oak


Margie Tate

Forest Hill, Louisiana

Plein air oil

Plein air painting is up close and personal with the subject matter. This painting of an old oak tree is an intimate study, just me, the tree and a soft breeze. This live oak and few more are isolated and hidden from view and can only be seen after a drive around the back of the property where I grew up. The tree is very old and I like to think it has stood witness to the many, varied and complicated human changes over the years.
