Rose Garden Tree - 3


This oak tree in the Rose Garden evidently intrigues me well enough to paint it a third time. This is a 30" x 40" oil on canvas and was done in the studio from a photo taken earlier in the week. (Hurray for air conditioning!) It took two days of painting and erasing before I was happy with the initial sketch. And only because Tilly and I had Friday off from pet therapy did I have time to work on it.

I'm actually on the hunt for interesting trees around Houston. If y'all have any favorites or recommendations, please let me know.

Love the orange highlights! The Menil has some incredible oaks in their "yard" and adjacent park areas.
