Perhaps you've never heard of JMU, and are curious why I've chosen to start my College Love series with it. Well, it's my alma mater! I have an art degree from JMU, and had a great time there. I also have 2 suitemates from my freshman year living in Weaver Hall who recently married guys who lived above us that year, and that inspired me to make this print. And I'd be willing to bet there are quite a few other couples who found love in their time at JMU! So, this print is for them. I'm sure those familiar with JMU will recognize the kissing rock in the print as well!
This print is hand printed from an original illustration, and the red umbrellas* are individually painted with watercolor (please allow for some minor variations, as each one is individually printed and painted).
The image size is approximately 5.75 x 3.5 inches on white Stonehenge paper. The total paper size is approximately 9 x 6 inches. I know the paper size is unusual, but never fear, you don't need a custom framing job, an 8x10 inch frame with a standard white 5x7 mat looks great! I usually buy mine from Michael's craft stores, where they sell simple black frames with the mat already included (these are the frames my prints are pictured in). Each print is signed and titled "JMU Love."
*I can also make the umbrellas a different color, including JMU purple, as seen in the last picture, or one purple and one yellow. If you'd like them red, purple, or yellow, just choose from the drop down box. If you'd like some other color, choose the "custom" option and let me know in the box titled "note to artsharkdesigns" during checkout. I can make them any color that is possible with watercolor (ie. no metallics).
***The watermarking that is on the scan of the print is not on the actual print! The actual print appears as in the photos.
The print will be shipped in a protective cello sleeve and a stay-flat cardboard envelope.
Thanks for looking!
