Autumn / Aspen Birch Tree Painting

This painting has been finished and ready to share for a while but I am having a really difficult time giving it a title. I was hoping that you could help!? Please leave me a comment in the box provided below this post or contact me directly with your suggestions.

Here is some additional information to inspire you:

This painting is lightly textured and has hints of shimmery gold and copper that peak out from behind the foliage. The metallic shimmer is difficult to capture in a photograph but here is a close-up detail to give you a better idea of what the painting would look like in person.

Here is a quote from Roald Dahl that inspires me and I find that it relates well to this painting, perhaps it will inspire your suggestion for a title.

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you, because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ~Roald Dahl

I can’t wait to hear all of your suggestions. Maybe something that you share will not only inspire a title for this painting but a title for my next one! Thank you for your help, please leave your comments in the box provided below.
