Adding some magic

Eucalyptus Series:
Blossoms & Butterfly

A couple of years ago, I created three small wall pieces, each nine inches square, on a eucalyptus theme.  One of them, Eucalyptus Grove (See image on my Wall Art gallery page), sold relatively quickly.  The other two hung unsold at Spanish Village for quite a long time.  And the longer they hung there, the more they bored me.  I finally took them down a couple of months ago and brought them home to my studio to consider how they might be salvaged.
Eucalyptus Series:

I liked the work I'd done too much to put the pieces on the recycle pile.  But they both needed something more.  What might be found on the trunk of a eucalyptus tree?  What might hang on a branch besides leaves?  What would look natural on the backgrounds I'd already created?
Here are the pieces, before and after.  I'm very pleased with them now.  So however long they may hang before they sell, at least now I will enjoy looking at them.
