WASHINGTON WATERCOLORS

IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR ME IN JANUARY 2016, I’LL BE WORKING ON COMMISSIONS AND OTHER PAINTINGS. I won’t be vending regularly  at Eastern Market this month because I’ll be creating new work.

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. Go to my Views of the City page to see more paintings. 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!)
