Heart of White Oak

Heart of White Oak

2018

30x30" (includes black wood frame,32x32")

This is the largest yet from my new Heartwood series. In the centre is a modified photo of a local White Oak, taken by my husband, Janusz Wrobel, a few years ago. This is one gorgeous tree and I'd always wanted to pay tribute to it. This is already a very old tree... may she live many years longer!

 

"When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured. And every young farm boy knows that the hardest and noblest wood has the narrowest rings, that high on the mountains and in continuing danger the most indestructible, the strongest, the ideal trees grow."
