CAPE MAY NJ VICTORIAN - II

During my many visits to Cape May I met Roman, the owner of the Washington Street Gallery. We talked about art, and the possibility of collaborating on a limited edition print of a CM scene. The result was "Hughs Street", which was the first of a long series of CM prints and the beginning of a long friendship. (Many of these prints are available on my website.)

The format is the same...each original watercolor measuring aproximately 18x45" and each print 12x37"


Hughs Street watercolor


Columbia Avenue. watercolor


Stockton Place watercolor This is a wonderful street. The homes were obviously identical when first built, and over the years their appearances altered slightly, but not enough to hide their shared origin.

Wonderful pieces, Bill. I love these long formats. They are really great for showing off these subjects.

peanut,
Publishing the prints in the 80s and 90s was a commercial eneavor, and subjects were selected on their marketability. The prints were sold primarily to small galleries and frame shops and if you check my website you will see that they depict towns and cities with a wide culture and tourist appeal.

The long horizontal format, the beautiful subject matter, and the artist skill make these images jump out of the screen.
