To fog or not to fog that is the question. My original vision had this tree with the fog rolling in. This turned out to put the focus on fog rather than the tree and it got a thumbs down from my husband, so I reverted back to "the tree" and left some ground fog in the painting instead. What we see in nature doesn't always translate well into a painting, or at least one this size. Perhaps a larger painting with more trees that could take being a backdrop for fog, allowing others to be clear of it. I'll give that a try next time.
The painting is very soft.
This measures 8" x 8" x just under 1 1/2" thick. The edges are painted also.
