Blah in Moonlight

I really like this tree. Really I do. What I don't like is the rest of the canvas. At first I had a crazy notion to put in these flowers (see photo below)...what was I thinking? Then I took them out. Better but lacking. I'm stalled - I haven't got a clue where to go from here. Still, I like the tree.

I'm headed to California for a conference - maybe the west coast air will blow out the cobwebs. Later -

I've got it! How 'bout an old radiator propped up against the tree? What do ya think Ron?

I don't like the red of the flowers with the tree, they seemed to compete. Keep it simple at the base, maybe a little white or whitish gold grass. Hope your trip is good:)

Lilli - I agree - I can't believe I put them in to start with, it looked so much better when I took them out. I need to "fiddle" with it some more - but no more red paint...what was I thinking?

Does it really need to be with or without flowers?…
As a tree, whether or not it has flowers at its base has no bearing when a tree is as wonderful as this.

cara,
I like the flowers - they draw you and make your eyes move around the painting.

Thanks for visiting Rob. Finding my stopping point has always been my weakness....how ironic in light of recent events - ha!

Dee - thanks for the visit and the comment.

Gerald - I have to really work hard at not "worring" a picture into the trash pile.

Cara, you have a way with trees though. The shapes are very good. I have the same problems with 'green' foreground and middle ground.
Hope you are well.

Mary - Thanks for the comment. I do like this tree.

I just got back from the Dr's - I start Cardio Rehab next week - they say I'm doing well -

Thanks for checking on me.
