Artist's Description

Incendia, Gimp and Virtual Painter Pastel.

I’ve imagined what a forest of sparkling, frozen “nitrogen trees,” would look like, after they have erupted from below the surface of a planet and frozen immediately in the air

Triton, a moon of Neptune, the furthest planet from us in the solar system is geologically active….with mysterious cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains.

Part of its crust is dotted with geysers believed to erupt nitrogen.

55% of Triton’s surface is covered with frozen nitrogen..

(the above info is from Wikipedia)


Just a note: In keeping with my love of turning ordinary images into abstract artistic paintings, with a proper painter’s rendering, (and me being neither an artist or painter,) almost all of my Fractal Images are edited in Gimp and processed in either Virtual Painter or Corel Painter Essentials.

And I take some of the most simple images from Incendia and Apophysis, and almost immediately, an idea, a theme, from the shape pops into my head. So that becomes the title. (It’s great fun!)

So if the titles seem a bit weird or vague, it’s just my inerpretation of the original image. *
