I was inspired by Downtown Vancouver and its surrounding area because of the density of buildings and surrounding waterways. I started the piece by laying out an exact replica of the street grid. I followed this with building the tallest buildings that are located in the north central part of the peninsula, tapering off in height towards the south. The remainder consists of commercial, industrial and suburban areas. Keep in mind that the buildings are not an exact replica; it is my interpretation of art. There are a lot of notable features that are exact to area. I built all of the buildings with a variety of hardwoods such as Black Walnut, White Oak, Red Oak, Sycamore, Sassafras, Maple, White Ash and Hickory. I used moss and lichen encrusted wood for all of the gardens and landscapes. For the waterways I used a wood that has been aged outside which gives it a blue-grey finish. This is the most time consuming piece I have built to date, a lot of planning and work went into building this piece. There are no words to describe how interesting it looks in person. As the light in the house changes so does the art piece, it is an art piece that you will not be able to take your eyes off of; you will never get bored of it. I am sure that this art piece will be the biggest point of conversation in your home. This artwork has a completely natural patina, which means that it has not been painted or stained. What you see is the natural color of the wood that has been aged for over 80 to 120 years. The entire piece has been sealed with a low VOC water based sealer to preserve and protect it. The total dimension of this piece is 44.5” wide by 36.5” high by 4” deep
