ANGEL OAK by Dan Robbins

We thought this photograph by Dan Robbins of the Angel Oak was one of the nicest photos we have seen of this live oak. We doubled matted it in colors that let the tree “shine” so to speak.

The Angel  Oak has come to symbolize Charleston.  It is a Southern live oak located in Angel Oak Park, on Johns Island near Charleston.  The Angel  Oak Tree is estimated to be in excess of 1500 years old, stands 66.5 ft  (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet (1,600 m2). From tip to tip  Its longest branch distance is 187 ft.
The Angel Oak Tree is thought to  be one of the oldest living things in the country.  The land where the Angel Oak Tree stands was part of Abraham Waight’s 1717 land grant.  The  City of Charleston now owns the property.  The Angel Oak Park is free and  the tree should be added to any visit to Charleston, Kiawah or Seabrook  Islands.

Google Places now comes inside for a look around.

  Did you ever want to see the inside of a business before you shopped there? Well now you can with Google 360. Come in and take a look around. This new photography feature allows you to see ur shop before you come in. Does it do the store justice? I think so ! I think it will give you a good sense that we have one of the largest selections of mouldings in the area. You can also see 6 racks of matting choices to select the perfect color for your art. We also have finished pieces on display. After you take a “look around” stop by and see for yourself!
