JR Busch Images

Milwaukee, WI


This is a tribute to Milwaukee's beautiful trees. This is a picture I took of a tree in Washington Park. 


Description of Process: 

I take my original photography and by hand create a unique piece of photography art like no other. First I make a laser jet print in reverse. I then brush a transfer gel medium on the surface of the image. The image is glued face down on to pine wood. Once dry, I get the surface wet and rub the paper away. After several sessions, the paper is removed revealing the ink from the original printout. I then sand the pine wood by hand, some stain is applied to the border around the picture. Finally I apply UV protection and a matte finish. Each piece comes with a d ring installed so the art is ready to hang.

7.25" x 5.25" x 0.75"

Each finished piece is truly unique due to the grain in the wood and the manual nature of the process, ensuring that no two versions of an image will ever be exactly the same. Pieces will vary slightly from the images shown.

Finished artwork is intended for indoor display and is not weather resistant.
