Bay View Milwaukee

“Bay View Milwaukee” Collage features some familiar historical landmarks with the South Shore Marina as a backdrop. The landmarks consist of the Avalon Theatre, White House Tavern, Schlitz Tied House (Now Two Brothers Restaurant), World War I Memorial in Humboldt Park, the anchor from South Shore Park, and the Bay View logo from the Welcome to Bay View Sign located on Howell Avenue. Also if you look closely, you will see a tree from South Shore Park intermingled with the back drop. Bay View is a vibrant neighborhood that is slightly quirky sometimes.


Description of Process: 

This collage consists of different photographs I’ve taken, digitally collaged, and finally printed in reverse onto laser jet printing paper. I then brush transfer medium onto the image and glue face down onto pine wood. Once the transfer is dry, I get the surface wet and begin rubbing the paper away. After several sessions, the ink from the printout is left behind on the wood. Each piece is hand sanded, small amount of stain applied to border and side. Finally sealed with UV protection and a matte finish. These collages sometimes show a quirkiness and make for a unique piece of art to enhance your wall!

    Each finished piece is truly unique due to the grain in the wood and the manual nature of the process, ensuring that no two versions of an image will ever be exactly the same. Pieces will vary slightly from the images shown.

    Finished artwork is intended for indoor display and is not weather resistant.



    Due to the unique, manual process, there are no returns or refunds once payment has processed.
