Long ago watercolour

I just came across this photo of a watercolour I did many years ago after University.  

It was an old gnarled apple tree I would pass in a field near a highway I often traveled.  One winter day I stopped, sketched and this came about.  I was sad when years later it finally died.  

I think my fascination with both trees and anatomy that holds me to this day is quite evident in this painting.

The painting is appox 24 x 30 inches and ended up hanging on some office wall at Imperial Oil in Toronto.  I'd love to think it part of the 'Collection' but in reality it was no doubt considered just a part of the office furniture.  Perhaps I should try to get it back one day.
