Description Even on the coldest days of winter beauty can be found in nature. Captured in the dead of winter, these barren snow covered trees have been frozen in time. A thick coating of ice and snow has replaced the lush foliage that once adorned them. The smooth icy coating has given them on an almost otherworldly appearance. This version features soft pastel coloring which has a calming effect on the scene. Original photograph enhanced with digital effects and textures. Also available in a more saturated colorful version.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
