IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME THIS NEW YEAR: HAPPY 2020! January brings unpredictable weather to Washington, so I’ll be skipping Eastern Market when it’s too cold, windy, or we’re beset by an art-unfriendly wintry mix. I’ll be working on new projects from my home in Adams Morgan. If there’s something you would like to buy, you’re welcome to set up a time to drop by. You can email me at maryjbelcher@comcast.net, or text or call at 202-390-9069. Thanks for making my 2019 holiday season a successful one at the Downtown Holiday Market!

WHAT DOES DC 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 a hundred views and maps of the city as matted prints, ranging in size from 8″x10 to 16″x20″ for $20 to $45 each.

Limited-edition prints, published by Old Town Editions of Alexandria, include the Rock Creek Park and National Mall maps, 18th Street in Adams Morgan, the Neighborhoods of Washington, DC, and the DC Cherry Blossoms Kimono. These numbered, signed pieces are created by Old Town Editions using the most advanced digital printing processes, resulting in the truest reproductions of the original watercolors that will last decades before yellowing in fading.
