The forest for the trees

Drawing and painting involves the development of the overall image and how one's eye travels through the picture. I think I should have added a tree to the right to stop the eye from shooting right off the page. I subconsciously added that background tree on the far right to serve that purpose but not sure if it did it justice. I'm learning to see the forest for the trees. Another lesson learned!
