About the Work

"These mixed media drawings that I have been calling 'wallpaper drawings', are loosely based off the old adage: 'if these walls could talk'. I'm playing with a dichotomy between the floral compositions and their subversive captions. Using mixed techniques borrowed from both decorative and communicative art, the foliage elements are hand-painted with watercolor and sign painters enamel; the captions are added last using a dry transfer process." - B Thom Stevenson

Authentication & Resale

Signed by the artist on front. This work is not accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. It is an original work, signed by the artist.


Please contact to have this work framed. Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.

Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.

We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.

Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.

Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.

Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.

Shippings & Returns

If you change your mind after placing your order, please email us at within 24 hours. We will not be able to accommodate cancellations for framed orders after that time period (as your frame will have been ordered and cut within that time period). We may not be able to accommodate your request to cancel your order for an unframed work after 24 hours if it has been packaged and processed by our fulfillment center. 

We are unable to accept returns on custom framed artwork. Our general policy is that we do not accept returns. If your print arrives damaged or does not meet your expectations, you may be eligible for a replacement or return. Any issues must be reported within 5 business days of receipt by emailing
