“The Salem Oak”
Acrylics on Panel – 6” x 6” – by Kimberly English ©2015
This painting was created as a tribute to the Salem Oak Tree for the 2015 Salem County Arts in Bloom Studio Tour. I worked from a photograph taken by Janice Chassier, a fellow Arts in Bloom Artist. I loved the unusual perspective of the tree because it also included the Salem Oak Diner, a favorite dining spot for locals. I believe the title gives both landmarks recognition and allows the viewer to determine which one is most important to them.
