How close to oak stump should I plant?

Last year we lost a large oak to disease. It was in the middle of what we called our "shade garden," but it's not quite as shady anymore. I've been monitoring the area the past several days, and it now gets full sun from about noon to 4pm, with a couple hours of filtered sun or bright shade. There's a large White Pine and Red Maple to the south and east of this site, which makes for full shade until noon. I would like to replace some Azaleas (miserable failure) with dwarf conifers and perhaps a small tree. How close would you recommend I plant near this stump? Here are a few pictures of the site. The metal skunk is my spouse's need for whimsy.
