In keeping with the theme from last weeks post, I am featuring two art prints where the subject matter is pretty simplistic, barren branches. These are shots of trees along the Cedar River in Cedar Rapids, Iowa during winter. I took this simple subject matter and started giving the branches a subtle abstract look to create images with more geometric patterns. As part of that process, I also changed the background to larger abstract shapes to keeping the focus on the barren tree branches. I created the Purple Barren Branches first and then wanted to use some of the same elements in the second one. I liked the power of purple and pulled it into the branches on the second one and notice the hint of green on the first one. I used it as the background on the second one, creating a different look altogether.

“I liked the power of purple”. Aha! You’ve discovered my secret!! I love the first one, of course!
And to my surprise, I even like the green one!! You are teaching me green appreciation! Thanx!
lol go purple and here’s to your new appreciation of green!!😎😎
😀 You are a great teacher, Kirt!
I am enjoying the purple one! The green reminds me of a lush forest.
Thanks for the feedback Nancy and for stopping by!!
Artistic one – feel like abstract painting! I like them both, but indeed, the purple looks pretty awesome!
Thank you Indah for the feedback and for stopping by!!
I like these, Kirt. Actually, at this point in the year, seeing what appears to be plant growth is encouraging.
Especially as you deal with more snow….:(

COLOR INDEED—FROM SNOW DROPPED WITH SPEED? 🙂
Thanks for the reblog!!
The purple is my top pick but both create such a peaceful feeling. I’m really liking these simplistic images and your creativity with editing.
Thank you very much Sue…I enjoyed creating them…I just try and step out of the way from over thinking and see where it takes me😀
Kirt these are both very pleasing to the eye. Beautiful for wall art.
You know… I can see either of them as making a great book cover — particularly for a cover that had to be text heavy.
Hugs on the wing!
I truly appreciate your kind words and the feedback Teagan!! Thank you for stopping by!!
Very nice Kirt! I see you are a dedicated artist, working at your craft and not afraid to experiment.
I’m always trying different techniques and methods….keeps me on my toes!! Thanks for stopping by!!
Both are very nice! The colors purple and green backgrounds really impact the barrenness of the branches with two distinct seasonal allures.
Thank you very much for the feedback!! Much appreciated!!
