Cleaned Up Elk Painting

I decided to remove that ridiculous looking tree in my painting of the elk herd. What a difference it made in the composition.
I tend to let my compositions get too busy. Two rules that I need to follow are ,"Less is more," and "K.I.S.S." That stands for, in case you don't know, "Keep It Simple, Stupid!"
I'm happy with it, now. Hope you like it, too.

Yeah, I had the lumberjacks come in and remove it. They did a pretty good job.
If you look at my previous post you can see the painting with the tree in it. It looks so bad there that I don't know what I was thinking.

Thanks, Ice. Actually, it is clear. It's just that the picture of it is awful. I took a quick shot with my camera. I know that if I intend to put some of my work on Etsy or Fine Arts America to sell them, I'm going to have to take better pictures of my work than this.
