Retro Red Christmas Tree On Vintage Gray
Digital Art - Digital Graphic
I enjoy working in graphic art and patterns and this is a newly created piece consisting of a graphic art Christmas Tree. I designed the retro style and shaped tree using vintage patterns reworked digitally with its symmetric Asian style pattern and old world appearance. I placed it on a background of a wavy stripe pattern which I also reworked digitally into gray tones with a slight distressed appearance. The large circles on the tree portray stylized ornaments which help make this a festive Christmas image.
Christmas ornaments on trees are thought to have started with a German tradition of placing things like candles and fruits on evergreen trees around the 16th century. Christians adopted this tradition for Christmas celebrations and it spread across Europe. It is thought that German immigrants brought the tradition over to America as they settled in the United States. Soon by the late 1800’s the ornaments were made of glass and imported to America. The American industry caught on and Christmas ornaments nowadays are made in many styles and materials. Christmas Trees with ornaments became an American tradition and is celebrated with festive colors and designs.
