This southern oak tree on the banks of the Chattahoochee River has been close to my heart for the last twelve years. I used to go sit under its shade by the river and draw, journal, and relax. I named it, "The Hastening Tree" because it fought against all odds to live, be beautiful, and reach for the light. I had a kinship with this tree. It had a large hole in the base where you could literally see the river through it. Yet, it leafed out season after season until the day it didn't. I pulled up to the river one day and found a pile of wood near where the tree had been. The city cut it down because it was diseased. I don't go back there any more. It's just not the same without my tree. This original painting hangs in my studio. It's a daily reminder to never give up.
