Mitchell Park (Vintage Postcard Series)

The Vintage Postcard Series features historic Milwaukee County Parks. As a vintage postcard collector, I was inspired by creating a new meets old look with a little unique twist including including Tree Limbs in each corner. Each sale I make on these, I will donate 25% of proceeds to Milwaukee County Parks. Milwaukee's Parks are very special to me and I feel very lucky that our city was forward thinking so long ago to set aside land for everyone to enjoy. 

 

Mitchell Park, named after Alexander Mitchell was a part of Milwaukee's original six parks (1890-91) This features the Mitchell Park Conservatory Domes which consists of the Floral Show Dome built in 1964, the Tropical Dome in 1966 and the Desert Dome in 1967. The domes feature a futuristic design by Milwaukee architect, Donald L. Grieb, who won a competetion to design the domes. The domes are a place of many child hood memories and are a gem of Milwaukee County Parks. 

 

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!
