Very nice.
Perhaps a few touches of lighter value, higher intensity greens would enhance it a bit.

rather a dreary depressing day .. no sunshine, no sap, sigh

i much prefer the livelier littles you've made but this will certainly appeal to some

La, the sun is out today! LOL now I remember what light is about!
There is a tap in the tree, it comes out at a downward angle and the sap runs out the tap into the bucket. The bucket has a cover on it with a hole in the top for the sap ..... the cover keeps the snow out of the syrup.
Now-a -days they use plastic tubing and vacuum hoses but its not as quaint looking to paint. There's a good slide show of the process here:
