"The Lewis Tree" Oil Painting

6x6, Oil on Canvas

This tree was painted for a wonderful friend, mentor and professor of mine at Dallas Baptist University, Dr. Naugle.  While he was visiting the home of C.S. Lewis he went on Addison's Walk the famous trail that Lewis walked when he was home at The Kilns. I like to think Lewis was dreaming up Narnia as he walked through those trees. 

Dr. Naugle was kind enough to take some shots of the trees while he took that same walk.  This was one of those trees.  So twisty and moving.  I loved that it seemed to spread out in all directions.  I call it "The Lewis Tree." 

If any of you are in the Arlington area on May 17th Dr. David Naugle will be giving a lecture on C.S. Lewis at the Arlington Museum of Art from 2-3 p.m.  Please come and hear this.  You will not be disappointed.  Dr. Naugle is a scholar and lover of literature and art.  His book, "Worldview: The History of a Concept" was selected as a 2003 Christianity Today Book of the Year.
