The Law Oak, 2018

72 x 56 cm, oil on canvas

This represents the actual oak tree outside Hirsch Hall. This piece was inspired by a UGA School of Law letter I received with a picture of the oak and the motto: “Prepare. Connect. Lead.” The oak itself symbolizes our legal studies rooted both in the grounds of North Campus and the history and principles of the University of Georgia School of Law. The red leaves of the Law Oak are the fruit of the tree, bearing the titles and positions of UGA School of Law graduates from partner to professor.
