Running down a back road in Bridgewater, VT, I spied this old truck buried beneath the surrounding vegetation. I was intrigued by the idea of nature reclaiming its surroundings when people have abandoned it. How many years would it be before the truck was decomposed, before it was like people - and all their history and memories - hadn’t been there at all? So, I wanted to paint this moment in time, where the truck and nature still coexist. These prints and cards would be perfect for the nature lover, gardener, outdoors person, or even someone that had a special truck in their life!
Choose from 5” x 7” open edition and 8" x 10,” 11" x 14" and 16” x 20” limited edition size prints. Limited edition prints are on bamboo paper and come numbered, titled and signed by artist, either with or without a mat and frame. Open edition prints are not numbered, but are titled and signed by the artist and can also be framed. Unframed 5” x 7,” 8” x 10” and 11” x 14” prints come with an archival backer and ship flat. Unframed 16" x 20" print ships rolled without a backer.
Framed prints are matted with an archival off-white mat and backer, under glass, and live edge frame is completely ready to hang. Mat and frame adds approximately 8” to each side; For example, an 8" x 10" print once framed is approximately 16” x 18." Frame dimensions are approximate due to the variability of widths in the live edge wood; No two frames are alike. Artist-crafted frame is made from rescued slab wood, wood that is normally burned as sugaring wood or bonfires. Frame is finished in three coats of Vermont poly-whey varnish, a USDA certified biobased product.
Inside of cards are left blank, ready for your personalization. Card measures approximately 5 1/4" x 4" and is printed on recycled white cardstock. A recycled white envelope is included with each card.
