This work makes you fall in love with nature all over again. Definitely the tree makes the paint and sets the background where it belongs. The roots look so real and very expertly done, plus all that red dirt tells a story about that tree! Outstanding Pat.. !!

Very old tree, but a nice one. The scene is rich in tones, which make it so believable real. Colours may carry impression, but tones establish truth.
