When I first starting out in college I thought I would be a big shot and study architecture. I’ve always been fascinated with buildings and the art that goes into creating them. Not so much the actual building of the structures but the designing and endless possibilities just made my heart soar.
Well, I did not stick with architecture for long but while I was majoring in it I took some incredible art classes. I just fell in love even more with the process of drawing and studying the lines, shapes, shades, and textures of buildings. Every building seemed to have its own personality and unique character. Whew…I am getting myself worked up. Can you tell that this is a passion of mine?
But I won’t continue to bore you with why I think architecture is so amazing and inspiring.
This design was done directly on a page taken from an antique pocket dictionary (dated to the year 1867 and approximately 4.5” x 6”). The frame is simple wood and the art itself is held tightly in place between two panes of glass. The piece is ready to be hung immediately with a notch located on the back.
I chose this exact frame because I wanted the frayed and weakened edges of the page to be clearly visible. Imagine what this book has been through. What would it say if it could talk? O, the stories it could tell.
*This artwork needs to be hung out of direct sunlight because the light will cause it to fade and ruin.
NOTE: I've edited the images to be as close to the original color of the piece as possible. Your monitor/screen may affect how the image looks (but with today's technology I wouldn't worry about it too much).
**If you receive your original art and are unhappy, have a change of heart, or the piece is damaged then you may return it within 45 days of purchase for a full refund. I will send you a prepaid box to return the item and upon the successful return of the item your payment will be refunded. Anything outside of the initial 45-days will only be eligible for credit towards another piece or custom original piece.
