The painting:

An oak, alone in a forest clearing in South West #France,painted plien aire, after a long hike I admired this oak and liked the symbolism.

Solitary, a lightening strike was almost inevitable on this sturdy oak, in old English a ‘blasted oak’.

Many of us have similar experiences.

The Forest of Sivens is renowned for it’s rare plants and is reputedly one of the 2 oldest unspoiled forests in Europe the other being nearby, the forest of Grisgne.

I am pleased to report, I saw this tree again in 2014 and it is looking well on the way to a complete recovery.
