Old Oak

Today I am sketching skyward with this old oak! A witness to both daughter's weddings, this pin oak was planted by my grandmother when her son (Uncle Brian) returned from his service to the marines.  Also witness to two grass fires that swept up around it and past it, it has watched 6 generations of my family gather on the lawn.  With ink and watercolor, I capture this tree with a new perspective, loving the whole process of doing so.  Painting number 2946 in 2946 days.
