Artist's Description

My Great-great grandfather William Beard built an opera house in North Woodstock, NH in 1897. It burned down in 1908 along with the Fairfield hotel, which was located next to the opera house and was owned by William’s uncle (building in bg). Many years ago, I got to visit the town and went looking for the opea house, not realizing that it had burnt down. The town historian had the original blue prints for the opera house, and made me a set. I proceeded to recreate the opera house in a CAD program. I then took a hidden line drawing from the CAD program and brought it into photoshop to render the scene. Oddly, the only part on this image that was not drawn and is an actual photo are the blueprints on the sawhorse. Those are from the original prints. They were black lines on white paper, but I changed them to the cyanotype.

Winner of The 2009 Guru Award for Illustration.
