Bicycle Frames and Wood Art Print by Tree Pruitt
This photograph shows bicycle frames displayed against various wood grain textures in black and white for a dramatic modern impact with an abstract flavor. From a local shop display widow, this is a scene that I pass on my daily walk that I just couldn't walk by again without capturing!
Prints are available via my DeviantArt space, and they will have a Modernist digital "texture" that I personally enjoy. Have a look! Click HERE.

Is art where YOU live? Artist In Residence is the title of this quirky assemblage of found objects that combine with an original painting to create unique small wall art featuring a haunting mime face pencil headed character drawing inside a scene that's topped with a front door overhang from an old dollhouse.

Then strips of painted paper from another project were glued into place along with vintage metal paper clips, a portion of an old wood ruler, pencils, paint brush heads, and strips of old cedar from a wood barn.
Though a serious piece of artwork, I hope that the fun I had creating it shows through with some whimsy. Thank you for taking the time to rea…
