The Oak in Winter

Huge oak trees border Bryant Woods on the west and a meadow to the east, all beautiful and protected for wildlife. I used to drive there until I figured out short cuts from home. Now I can run there and in a fairly small area, see wetlands, a river, the canal that feeds Lake Oswego, a fir forest and the tall grassy field. Lots to work with!

Breaking the rules of centering your main subject, you've given this oak even more prominence in the painting. There is something like poetry in the painting of a single tree and you've accomplished that here. Have a wonderful New Year!
