But I felt like it needed something else. Like maybe a clear focal point. The weeds seemed to be the focal point, but I felt that the sky provided a space to hold another shape or two-- or more (remember, I'm working with silhouettes). So I added the outline of five birds in flight. And then a sun or moon shape coming up (or down) over the horizon. One more layer of vegetation in the foreground created more of a sense of depth to the final piece.
The title "Up With the Birds" now leaves no doubt as to the time of day and identity of the round shape on the horizon.
