Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Birches and their Neighbours - Day 3

Winter Branches

Red Osier Dogwood Branches  
- bright red lines in the wintertime

The red color of these branches stands out in the morning sunshine, and it looks especially bright against the sky and trees on the hill behind. The abstract composition of forked lines is minimalist, and compelling in its simplicity.

The red is so vivid! And the blue sky! Like crisp cold winter -- clear and bright and where you see minimalist I see structure. Or is that the same thing?

Mavis said...

Perhaps minimalist and structural are one and the same thing.
Or, is minimal what is left when you take away, and structural what you have before you start to build up?
Thanks for that thought! :)
