The Live Oak
Acrylic on paper mounted on canvas
40 x 60 inches
"The Live Oak" is painted in shimmering gold in a field of green to honor the live oak. The tree both provides shade and absorbs large amounts of heat-trapping CO2 far more than any palm tree. It is a good practice to continue planting the live oak and to protect and care for those we already have. We are fortunate to have such an environmentally friendly tree in Florida.
