"Our Town"...

I bought three of these little wooden "book" boxes awhile back. They measure 5"x7" with a depth of approximately 3". This one is covered in a scrap of an old pillowcase, (that has been the object of a couple of other of my creations...) some tissue paper and acrylic paints. The inside has contains a photo copy that I made onto a piece of ancient rag type watercolor paper that belonged to my dad that I've been carrying around in my "stash" trying to figure out what to do with it. It worked perfectly for this as it's a tad aged looking to begin with. I copied my favorite passage from the play "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder and collaged it in with some polyurethane. (It's Emily's closing speech at the end of Act III). And there you have it!

If you are interested in purchasing this box, please email me at
40.00 USD plus shipping.
