IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME THIS WEEKEND: On SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, AND SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, I WILL BE AT EASTERN MARKET on Capitol Hill, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting. My stall is outside on the North Carolina Avenue end of the building. Feel free to call me on my cell phone to make sure I’m there, 202-390-9069, especially if the weather seems iffy. Eastern Market’s food and art offerings reflect a tradition dating back to the founding of Washington, when markets were set up to serve each section of the city. The original Eastern Market was located near the Navy Yard. Today’s Eastern Market, built in 1873, stands on 7th Street between C Street and North Carolina Avenue SE.
Did you see my “Map of Rock Creek Park” in the Washington Post Magazine on Sunday, July 13? I sell the map, created in 2002, as a limited-edition museum-quality print for $395 framed (dark wood, custom-made in North Carolina, 37″x17″) or $300 unframed. (Click on my Maps Gallery page above for a look at Rock Creek.)
THE MAP OF THE NATIONAL MALL, HAINS POINT AND SOUTHWEST IS NOW AVAILABLE! See the “MAPS GALLERY” page for a view of how it looked in progress and for other maps.
WHAT DOES D.C. LOOK LIKE? The squat red building that is Ben’s Chili Bowl?
The White House? Frederick Douglass’s house? The arches of Key Bridge, or the marshes of the Anacostia? I sell more than 100 watercolor views and maps of the city as matted prints, ranging in size from 8″x10 to 16″x20″ for $15 to $45 each. Limited-edition prints, published by Old Town Editions of Alexandria, include maps of Rock Creek Park, the Potomac River Gorge, and the Neighborhoods of Washington, D.C. Also available as a limited-edition print: the D.C. Cherry Blossoms Kimono.
These numbered, signed pieces are produced on state-of-art large-format printers with inks and papers that won’t yellow or fade for decades. They contain all the subtleties of color and tone of the original watercolors. Framed, limited-edition prints range in price from $145 to $395.
More paintings can be seen by clicking on the Views of the City page on the menu bar above. For the best place to view my work in person, come to Eastern Market. If there’s a piece you already know you want, you can contact me at 202-462-9069 or email@example.com. (Don’t forget the middle initial, “j” for Jane!)
