A gnarled oak stands among the tall grasses, its twisted branches catching the warm red rays of sunset. The impressionistic brush strokes are loose and expressive, adding texture and movement to the piece.

"Gnarled Oak" was created on 1/8" linen board, and it arrives in a plein air frame, ready to hang.
