Wisdom Oak

10" x 8" oil painted en plein air on canvas covered hardboard - $85 -
The old oak has seen possibly a century of modern development around town, but its feet are still firmly planted in the N Georgia clay. It has become a landmark for those who love the simple pleasures of the earth.

Amazing thought..and I appreciate your reminding me of such a thing with your painting-that a tree would have survived so much.

No one knows exactly how old the tree is. I've heard that since it stands in a protected park, there might be a plaque set beside it - if botonists can agree on its age.
