Here's my Blue Gum....I used my 'artist license', so you will have to use your 'artist imagination'!!  LOL  I put a bird on two limbs and was going to put one on the path, but something happened.   :confused:   Sooooo...you'll have to decide what it is.

There are so many lovely paintings....This is a very interesting lesson.

Ah Retta, You did just fine on your tree. I like your background.  O0 O0 O0 I thought it was a silhouette of a dancer on the road to Casablanca.   :2funny: :2funny:

Pretty background! And you really have the feel of peeled bark, Retta.

 :heeha: The peeled bark at the base of the tree is superb.  O0 Great job on the painting overall.....could be that pesky squirrel from Let's Draw trying to move in.......  ;D Nolan has got to learn to control his pets!  >:D

Super job on the tree, Retta and your background is lovely & misty.
Could be the silhouette of a squirrel dancing on the road to some nuts. :2funny:
