Old Tree

Old Tree 18x24 Oil on Masonite

This is an old tree down the street from our house. I don't know anything about trees but like it's shape and that it's (I guess) so old. The land belonged to a family for several generations and was used as pastures and raising hay. Now it's in the beginnings of being a subdivision. That's progress - at least for us!

Once again my digital camera (or the software) is having a tantrum and won't represent the colors in the painting. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :-)


  1. Lovely old tree, Ken. I like it's shape. It's a great portrait.

  2. Hi Ken!
    That is certainly an old tree... I'm a biologist but wish I knew more about trees and plants in general (which I love!).
    This tree has a certain nostalgic feel, but still shows hope... that's my personal interpretation... and I'm sticking to it ;o)

    Best regards,

  3. Hi Liz, Carolina! Thanks for looking at my tree. I wish that the colors of my painging didn't look so different than the photo. But . . .

    Talk to you later.
    Ken B.
