'Bur Oak' features a mix of verdant green foliage with splashes of yellow, suggesting a scene bathed in sunlight. The strokes have an impressionistic quality, creating a dynamic interplay of light and shadow that provides depth to the scene. The top portion of the painting holds a canopy of tree branches and leaves, which is densely packed with a variety of green hues and dabs of white to indicate light filtering through.

In the lower part of the painting, a clear reflection of the trees and the sky on the water's surface can be seen, characterized by horizontally oriented brushstrokes. The water appears calm and mirrors the colors and shapes found in the rest of the scene, effectively capturing the tranquility of the setting. Overall, the painting embodies a serene moment in nature, focusing on the beauty of a woodland area, perhaps in the brilliance of late afternoon light.
