The Grand Oak of Oak Ridge Plantation
Egg Tempera Fall of 2019
36 x 24
In Nelson County Virginia on a large sloping hill top sits this massive black oak.  Its estimated at between 800 and 900 years of age.
I've visited this tree many many times in the last 40 years.  Like an old friend who is slowly aging with me.  I hope it lives another 800 years, and my descendents can visit it.
