Painting the tree in the bluebonnet field

It is time for my annual warning: just because all of the canvas is covered with paint, that does not mean the painting is done!  There is a fence to add, aging on the house and the tree... oh the tree...

I decided not to do the exact tree from the photo, so just started putting leaves anywhere I liked.  It looked like a green lollipop!  I have added some character back in by splitting the trunk with a triangle of sky, but it needs even more.  Perhaps more variety in the shapes of the leaf areas and a scar from a broken branch....
