Artistic Cape Cod Painting Adventures

Wellfleet Watercolor
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt
Hatch's Fish Market in Wellfleet, Cape Cod~ Original Watercolor Painting
This original watercolor painting depicts the charming beach town of Wellfleet in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Hatch's Fish Market is in the center of Wellfleet and a must stop for any beach goer to pick up fresh fish and produce to cook up at the end of a sun burnt day enjoying the beaches of Cape Cod. Landscape paintings in the home offer a window to the world. This Cape Cod painting is original and signed by the artist. A mother and son are walking from the market in their casual beach clothes, the little boy topless in a bathing suit and flip flops as he enjoys a juicy peach with the nectar juice running down his fingers. This painting of Cape Cod also includes the parking lot filled with tourist cars that have their bikes on the back-- I am sure you remember going on vacation and taking long lazy bike rides and then ending the day with an ice cream or fish fry. A special artistic element of this original painting are the abstract depiction of the trees and foliage in the background of the watercolor landscape.

Size: 11x15" Original Watercolor Painting
Media: Archival Watercolor on French Made Arches Paper
Optional Matting Available:  Recommend that you mat this with 16x20" which is a 2.5" mat border all the way around, 16x20" is a standard size frame available at many craft and framing stores and would save you considerable money on custom framing.

Nautical Themed Family Room with Cape Cod Painting
Decorating Idea!
Whenever you have a blue and white living room, have a punch of natural tones like the faux-wood wallpaper from Nobilis. This nautical themed family room is both inviting and relaxing. The original artwork depicting the summer vacation scene is a wonderful reminder of times spent together as a family during the summer.  Designed by Keller Donovan, this blue and white room is crisp simple and all-American. The designer's choice for artwork has been digitally replaced with the watercolor featured in this blog to give you decorating inspiration for your own home.
