|Marilyn Rea Nasky "Red Oak Winter" 48 x 36 x 2.5" Acrylic on canvas|
This December was cool, dry, and clear here in Central TX. The Red Oaks turned an amazing flame red which invited long walks and a lot of observation. I had previously painted a series of Live Oaks using watercolors and was inspired to use acrylics to capture my feelings about the Red Oak trees that grow outside my studio window. After I hung this piece several viewers commented that the vantage point took them back to childhood...being small and looking up through trees overhead, and a feeling of wonder.
The painting is now being shown with other original works at the
J Gallery, JCC Dell Community Campus Center 7300 Hart Lane, Austin TX
