Domino effect

I became enamored of the image of the domino bridge and hung it near my work table waiting for inspiration to strike. It did ... in the form of the text from the popular British nursery rhyme "This is the house that Jack Built." The man on the ladder is an acrylic image transfer of a gymnastics illustration from Cassell's "The Popular Educator," a massive mid-19th century encyclopedia offering an education in everything from music to architecture. He was the last touch on the piece. I liked that he was hanging from the ladder and how it looked against the lines of the vintage library date due card. The circles? A recycled gift bag. 6.5" x 4.5" on acid-free watercolor paper   {SOLD}
