Article I of the Constitution is about the Congress. Using color change in the letterforms, Loy created a glowing landscape for the backdrop of her drawing of the Capitol Building, which is superimposed on the words of Article I. This painting took the artist more than 500 hours over 5 months to complete.

Article II of the Constitution is about the Executive branch. Susan hand-lettered Article II over a background drawing of the White House, viewed from the North Grounds. She carried over the colors of black, brown, red, white, and blue and the themes established in "The Preamble" into this piece. "We the people," lettered in deep red Gothic capitals, looms above the White House.

Article III of the Constitution is about the Judicial branch. Carrying over the colors of black, brown, red, white, and blue and the themes established in "The Preamble," Susan Loy outlined the words, "Justice" and "We the People." She used elements from the Supreme Court Building in the design, lettering the words incised on the architrave above the west and east porticos, "Equal Justice Under Law" and "Justice the Guardian of Liberty."
