Tree or no Tree? That is the Question!

This is the landscape I showed in my last post. Now I'm trying to decide if I like it better with the trees or without them.
I put the mat board on top to give some perspective to the size of everything. I really wanted to put birch trees in but am not sure what to use for fabric and how to get the birch bark effect. Then the other question is, if I keep the trees, do I put leaves on or keep them bare. I sort of like them bare but am not sure.
Maybe now that the Olympics are over, I'll get more quilting in!

YES! I love the way that the addition of a foreground element really makes the DEPTH of the image WORK!

I love the addition of the trees...
You can try auditioning leaves...the piece looks like it could be either season...I love adding more green to stuff, but thats me...

How's about...

Extending the branches out of the border at the top and adding just a FEW yellowy leaves?

I sure love it so far!
