About This Image

Colonial Williamsburg is peppered with buildings that have their places in the history books. I visited this area of Virginia because of my personal family ties to nearby Jamestown, but for any history buff, Williamsburg is a must visit. It’s simply one of those places where you feel you are walking in history. Perhaps it’s because of how old the settlement is, but I think just as much because Colonial Williamsburg has a wealth of historic architecture.

Pictured here for example is not just a quaint piece of colonial architecture but part of the seeds for the American Revolution. The Gunpowder Incident took place here in 1775, The Gunpowder Incident was the seizing of arms by the Royal Governor. This was an event that greatly angered the American colonists. Definitely among the events that sparked the American Revolution in the year that followed.

Standing there in the 21st century, it may be hard to envision the events of long ago. The skies are beautiful, the landscape that surrounds Colonial Williamsburg is the picture of bucolic. Colonial Williamsburg is simply the embodiment of Americana and folklore. Yet this was the stage for a war that followed. I guess appearances can indeed be deceptive. It’s hard sometimes to imagine everything that’s happened in a given place. Hard to imagine the people that have passed there and the lives they touched. But it’s wonderful that some of these places, like Colonial Williamsburg, and their stories are preserved for the future.

Have you stood outside the fortifications that surround the Magazine in Colonial Williamsburg and imagined those long ago events? Or are you simply an armchair historian who loves our shared stories and the old architecture that still stands as a reminder of them? In either case, I hope you enjoy this print. It still reminds me of a summer day wandering through colonial history.

How Can I Help?

At the end of the day, it’s important to me that you can put a face with the art you’re considering purchasing through my site. Aside from the print vendor who ultimately prints and ships your order, this is a one man show. The person who made the art is the same one who is typing this message and the one who will answer your questions if you drop me a note.

You are not a number and I care that you are happy with whatever art you might buy here. I’m here if you’d like to ask questions before or after purchasing. And I’m also happy to work with you where possible to customize the work you’re buying. Maybe you’d like a tweak to the shape of a print to fit in with your existing wall art. Or you’d like to add a little nod to someone special in it? Just ask! I also keep a running list of subjects I don’t currently have but people are seeking. So if you enjoy the style of my work but didn’t find quite what you were looking for, please do let me know.

I’ve been an artist for 15 years now and most of that time it’s been my full-time passion. And it matters to both the endorphins in my brain and the food I put on the table for me (and my cats) that you find the experience of purchasing the products offered here to be a pleasure.
