Angel Oak

$85.00$2,500.00

The Angel Oak is estimated to be more than 400 to 500 years old and 65 feet high. It stands in a wooded area on John’s Island just outside Charleston in South Carolina. Historical records trace the ownership of the tree and the land on which it stands to 1717 when it was given to Abraham Waight as part of a land grant. The tree stayed in that family four generations. The land was also used as part of a marriage settlement between Martha W.T. Angel and Justus Angel. Today, Angel Oak serves as the focal point of a public park in South Carolina. Angel oak is now owned by the City of Charleston and it costs absolutely nothing to look upon the tree on John’s Island.

Original is sold, available as giclee and APs. Ask Robert about larger custom sizes.

Angel Oak was commissioned by Amy and Justin Coach, who are fans of my work and needed a large painting for their cathedral “vaulted” ceilings. Here’s the story of how the piece came to be.

My family has many personal memories at the Angel Oak, including this special visit with Robert E. Lee in 2014.
