Visual Storyteller

In the 300 years it stood in Princeton Battlefield Park, the original Mercer Oak attracted many artists who photographed it or otherwise memorialized it. But when a mighty wind ended its life in 2000, a new tree was planted from the seed of the mother. The new sapling, having not yet acquired such majesty as its parent, has yet to be significantly chronicled by artists… until now. Thomas Kelly has created this image of the new Mercer Oak. Most of Mr. Kelly’s paintings tell stories.

Here’s a link to the Mercer County College Alumni newsletter, where Mr. Kelly, written about on The Artful Blogger, has been profiled: http://www.mccc.edu/~humphrew/whatsnew/alumthomaskelly.htm
