Ancient Oak by Rachel Widdows
Oil on canvas 90cm x90cm I am working on a series of paintings of ancient Oak trees. These incredible historical trees can be found in the surrounding hedges and fields. They are all such magnificent trees, with lives that span hundreds of years. It is easy to take these trees for granted, they have always been there, witnessing the comings and goings of local human lives. They can seem immune to time. This painting is of an old oak that is starting to show its age, it has numerous dead branches and is clearly gradually dieing from old age and the ravages of storms. Sadly recent storm damage saw the tree lose a huge bough. It is likely that the tree will fall prey to another storm in the next few years, or be felled as another oak was nearby. I counted the rings, it was over 400 years old.
