A Study of Trees - Part 1

I've been working on some small (5 x 7) study paintings here lately. These 3 have the little leafless trees/bushes that I tend to put here and there in the desertscapes.
There are two ways to consider them: 1) that it's winter and spring is on the horizon OR 2) that they are dead. I'll leave it up to the viewer to decide.
