This is a a window made for a friend to gift to his client, a new brew pub in Chicago called Forbidden Root. This design is not mine, it is Forbidden Root's coaster image. Awesome gift for a cool place.

Juke Joint Blues

Juke Joint is both a venue for dance music and a rockin' style of rhythm blues from the 50's. These venues in the south were usually intimate and were the place to be.
This frame is made from recycled wood flooring and glass from Cincinnati.

A Tangled Mess of Forest They Call the Wilderness

This is a great antique window from a 105 year old house in Cincinnati. The saying is something I heard from a documentary on the historic American landscape. I found it captivating, imaginative... and though this neat window would be perfect. The lettering and ornament is similar to a turn of the century alphabet that was used often for signage.

Howl At The Moon

For all the night crawlers out there, bring out your inner wolf.
Also made with cool, recycled wood flooring from a Cincinnati school gymnasium.

The Midnight Sun

Not only an awesome act of nature, The Midnight Sun is also an instrumental song originally written in 1947. It was adapted in 1957 with vocals by Ella Fitzgerald. She nailed it. Hear it here...
Unfortunately, this glass cracked when I got a lil handsy building the frame. (crack is pictured) But, not a problem for me cause I'll just keep it! Unless someone else digs it as much as I do, I can potentially make another.
Frame is recycled wood flooring from a Cincinnati school gymnasium.

$ Keepin' It


Black is one of my favorite colors, or for you artsy folks, my favorite absence of color. If I was a graffitti artist I would write NOIR on everything. Classy with an edge. Not to mention a wonderful genre of film.

Moon Glow - reused pallet wood frame

Moon Glow. The moon at night it very soothing to me. Something about the night glow, the quiet, and at this time of year...the crisp air...nothing is better.
I chopped up an old pallet to get this frame. Gives it character!

Street Fighting Man

I'll always be a Stones fan thanks to my dad. A few years ago I did a Rolling Stones window for him as a gift: Jumpin' Jack Flash. This time, I was diggin' on Street Fighting Man. As a scrappy kinda person and a fight fan, this was perfect. Enjoy!

Also, the painting was made from old repurposed glass and some killer wood flooring out of a Cincinnati school gym. Thanks to Rebuilding Greener in cincy for having the materials.

Ramblin' Man remake

It's been awhile! Got a great new group of windows to show. To start, I remade one of my favorite first windows, Ramblin' Man. It's good to be back! Look out for new wind-ows and customs coming soon. As always, Etsy will have priced pieces for sale but you can always contact me for a window or a custom painting. -Bean

Pappy Van Winkle Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Custom Window

Here we have a near custom window for a small batch whiskey. Eliza had this made for her husband. He would by a bottle when it's available to celebrate new beginnings with work, hence the celebrate be beginnings on the window. Since it's small batch it is a pricey bottle. So Eliza's solution was to have a more permanent representation of Pappy Van Winkle whiskey in the form of this wind-ow. The pappy lettering is similar to the bottle logo, coupled with a vintage script similar to the Indian motorcycle font and a slim yet elegant antique bank font. Enjoy!
Pappy Van Winkle SOLD (approx 24x34in)
