Barren Branches Go Colorful – Featured Art Prints

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!

    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!
