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. 

 

Riverside Park is apart of Milwaukee's "Emerald Necklace" of Parks. Riverside was a part of the Milwaukee Park Commission's first projects. The formation of Lake Park, Riverside Park, and Newberry Boulevard. Landscape Architect Frederick Law Olmsted's vision was to connect them all into a continued park land that incorporates urban living. Olmsted's vision was to bring people together and not divide. This image features the Stone Arch located at Milwaukee's Rotary Centennial Arboretum, which was a project of the Urban Ecology Center located within Riverside Park. 

 

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!
