The Candler Oak – Savannah

August 25, 2010

I’m not 100% sure where I’m going with this series, other than it’s in my blood to draw Live Oaks at the moment.  Sometimes it’s best not to force an idea…let the drawing hand do the thinkin’.

The years have been far better to the tree than to the structure for which it was  named.
