Day 29 - 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Beau & The Oak | Pastel | 9x12

This is something I have long wanted to paint.  Met Shannon Martinez of Winters told me about this huge oak tree in her family's vineyard over a year go and she kept mentioning it.  Tried two times to capture the huge span of this oak but just couldn't find the right angle.  A month ago, she sent me several pictures of the oak but more importantly, the Lab named Beau.  He's a little bigger in this rendition, or maybe the Oak is a little smaller, but none the same, they seem happy with each other in this painting.
