Artist's description:

"Quercus Suber" was my entry into "A Natural Selection", a Group Exhibition organised by Graphic Studio, Dublin a few years ago. The exhibition theme related to the National Botanic Gardens.
Having visited the National Botanic Gardens in Dublin and being a tree-lover, I was struck by the lovely shape of the Cork Oak Tree specimen - Quercus Suber. I decided that would be my main subject, and I included an element of the complex structure of one of the glass-houses, in order to put the tree into the context of the Gardens. The glasshouse element of the print also mimics the shape of the tree. In drawing up the tree, I presented it in a stylised manner, rather in the shape of a Bonsai. I felt that this was appropriate, as the National Botanic Gardens do have an annual show of Bonsai trees in one of the smaller glass-houses. Lastly, as I was proofing the print, I remembered that the oak tree is part of the Flanagan crest - a sign !!
