City Park in New Orleans - Original Painting

The Live Oaks in New Orleans' City Park are a sight to behold!  Their large twisted branches, covered with Spanish Moss, spread out over the old Metairie Bayou, offering a deep and tranquil shade.  Many of these ancient oaks are over 600 years old.  They are called "live" because their branches are never bare; dropping leaves are replaced by new leaves almost at the same time.  To walk among these ancient giants is an awe inspiring experience!  To learn more about City Park visit:  http://neworleanscitypark.com/live_oaks.html
