Big Oak On Geiger 

6x6 inches

Prussian Blue and metallic silver gouache on paper over canvas.

Another amazing tree from Geiger Hollow in Allegany NY. This tree is on a "lease road"-old roads cut into the hills to get to oil wells 


So today is my late father's birthday. My family was in the oil business for about 120 years (I'm the first carbon friendly male in generations :) ), I spent a lot of time working on my Grandfather's oil properties with my dad as a young kid, so this piece really reminds me of him, and my grandfather The property is actually owned by a guy that worked for my grandfather- I didn't know until I approached him from about walking his woods. Small town life!
