Description 'Cedar Rapids Barn' is a sepia tone photographic wall art print of this old barn located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I came across this scene quite by accident. I was visiting family in the area and we were driving through a neighborhood of large homes on large properties. This area was fast becoming the place to be for upscale estates, when I saw this barn through the trees. I knew I had to get out and take advantage of this opportunity. I love the way this shot came out as you would never guess it sat amongst million dollar homes.I used a sepia tone finish on the photograph for that old rustic look. The sepia brown tones originated with film photography as part of the process to develop the prints in the 1800s. Today, we can recreate that same vintage look digitally. This type of wall art print lends itself to a rustic or old vintage type of interior decoration. Even with that said, I have seen this style used in more modern dcor that had earth tone elements to it. The way a print is matted and framed can change the entire look of the print.Follow my work:TheWallGallery: https://thewallgallery.comBlog: http://thewallgalleryblog.wordpress.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/KirtWallGalleryFacebook:https://www.facebook.com/TheWallGallery.KirtTisdaleCopyright 2012 Kirt Tisdale/TheWallGallery.com
Kirt Tisdale, Sherman Oaks Member Since February 2013 Artist Statement I have been creating art since I can remember. I have been blessed with having my work featured in various venues. What drives me is the beauty in the world with which we live. I remember as a kid looking up at the clouds and watching them change shape...if they could only stay in one shape long enough for me to enjoy and appreciate them....but that's not how it works. What I can do though is take a moment and freeze it. The beauty around us needs to be savored, contemplated and appreciated. Good art invokes an emotional response either through the scene depicted or the colors used. I hope my work invokes the same in you.
