WASHINGTON WATERCOLORS

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME THIS WEEKEND:  I’ll be at Eastern Market SATURDAY, APRIL 19, and SUNDAY, APRIL 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather permitting.  My stall is 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.

Eastern Market’s variety of food and artist offerings reflects 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 along 7th Street between C Street and North Carolina Avenue SE.

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 maryjbelcher@comcast.net. (Don’t forget the middle initial, “j” for Jane!)
