A couple of weeks ago, I was in a consignment shop and came across two boards propped in a corner of one of the vendor spaces. They were somewhat hidden with some books and things stacked in front of them.
I was quite excited when I saw what they were. I am thinking they are page mock-ups for a book of some type.
One of the pen and ink drawings was a large tree (as seen in the photos). Loving trees, I grabbed it up ~ had to have it! It is done on a piece of 15" x 20" Bainbridge Board. The text is glued on. It is signed A. Lohman, '49. There is a little water damage at the bottom, but I don't mind. I am going to frame it as is and hang it in my studio. I love it.
I have no clue who this A. Lohman is or if this was ever used in a book. I just think it is a great piece of art and I am thrilled to have it.
If you double click on the photo, you will be able to read the text as well as see some of the detail.
