A Beautiful Day In My Neighborhood

I would say at least 80% of the housing in Baltimore is a row house of some kind. It's just about all I see. So I slightly changed my plans, and I decided to make this piece solely based around the inked and printed/used row house plates. I was going to incorporate them into another raven piece, but this looks way cooler than what I had originally intended. What I ended up with is this low relief sculptural (and painted) piece. The red sky curls around the edges to create a nice effect when walking up on it from an angle. I enjoy my newly created neighborhood, and I'd like to do something similar again.



Pretty Maids, All In a Row

thanks! i am trying to find a way to fit this into my personal, 'hanging in my own house' collection. it was a time-consuming, but genuinely fun process for me.
