I have long been a bit fascinated by New England. It is after all a part of the US that features heavily in American History and classic American literature. Yet, I have to honestly say that my trips to Massachusetts to date amounted simply to a happy accident. In my old nine to five job, I worked with a client near Boston and to my delight they liked to have meetings near the weekend. So on my two adventures to Boston, I spent long weekends exploring the history of Boston and nearby Salem. Although I have enjoyed my visits to a number of American cities, it was Boston that most won me over.
I guess it makes me sound like a dull boy, but before my travels to Massachusetts, I never imagined living in any other part of the country. But Boston and particularly the nearby communities like Salem strike me as beautiful places to live. Certainly I enjoyed the historic architecture of Salem and the mix of old and new in the bustling city of Boston. And, well, I’ve always enjoyed being near the sea. The funny thing is since I visited Boston, I have read that it is often called the most European city in America, and I can totally see it.
At any rate, this small collection of vivid Massachusetts art prints represent the places and things that struck me most as a New England neophyte. From the Boston Skyline rising over the waters of the harbor to The House of The Seven Gables in Salem, it appears my artistic take on these beautiful Massachusetts cities have resonated with others. My time in the area all told has amounted to less than a week, so I am very proud to know that my scenic Boston and Salem prints from that short period hang on the walls of past and future art buyers.
No doubt, your patronage has encouraged me to make my way back to Boston and Salem some day, and I hope to take in more of Massachusetts one day! Not that I needed a lot of encouragement to re-visit those beautiful places but it certainly adds fuel to the fire! Thank you!
Your interest in my artwork is most appreciated!
The art you decorate with is something that you will look at for years to come. This is true whether it is wall art for your home or a public space in your place of business. Paint colors may come and go, but the artwork often outlives the rest of your decor choices.
That is why I am more than happy to answer any of your questions. Whether you want to know more about a specific piece of art or have a more general question, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I love the opportunity to discuss the story behind my art as much as sharing helpful details.
I am also open to discussing any special requests you may have. Perhaps you have a special decorating challenge or need artwork tailored to fit a specific space? Or you have a special design opportunity to discuss?
Well, I have always enjoyed challenging projects, so just ask!
This is only a portion of my Massachusetts artwork. I am still in the process of updating my galleries. To see the rest, please see my Full Massachusetts Print Collection available through Fine Art America.
