Judas Tree Study

My newest tree study. A little 6x6 Oil. I want to get the coloring for the painting, "The Judas Tree." I like the idea of reds with browns for the tree with the light behind it. The symbol of how God was there even as Judas chose not to ask for forgiveness for his betrayal. He is the ultimate tragic figure in all of Scripture. In the larger piece I will have a figure entwined in the tree. For this one I liked the color and left it as it was.
