November Sky

November Sky - 6 x 6 Oil on Gessobord
This painting was done from a photo of a tree that I planted in our front yard several years ago.  It was a seedling sent to us from the Arbor Day Foundation - one of about 10, and the only one that lived (due to user error, I'm sure.)  I'm not sure what kind of tree this is - if it looks familiar to anyone, let me know.
I have always loved berries and leaves, and liked the look of these against the stark overcast November sky.
