About This Image

There are some buildings and places that stick with us from an early age. For me, the Windsor Hotel, seen in this print, fits that category. Although I didn’t grow up in Americus, Georgia, it was near my hometown. So near in fact, that I later attended and graduated from the local university in Americus. Growing up, my family traveled to and through Americus quite often. With such regularity in fact that I don’t have a first memory of the the great brick castle like building in this Americus print. But I remember seeing it rising above the streets of Americus from an early age.

This is the Windsor Hotel in Americus. The old Victorian hotel originally opened in June of 1892. This 100 room gracious old hotel long outlived its own era of genteel living. When it opened, it was on the railroad and a prime spot for wealthy northerners to winter in the warm south. It limped into a temporary grave in the early 1970s. And unfortunately those are my early memories of the Windsor, an empty and forlorn sight, like the ruins of an old Gothic castle or palace. But thanks to a wealth of local community pride, the Windsor Hotel was restored in 1990.

It definitely warms my heart that the Grand old lady of Americus in this Windsor Hotel print is once again a reason to visit Americus. There are far too many stories like this that end with a large parking lot in the middle of small towns around America. And that Victorian style just seems to be something that we can’t quite reproduce today. The hand-tooled craftsmanship of these beautiful old buildings seems lost.

Have you stayed at the Windsor Hotel? Or perhaps like me, you have long memories of this beautiful building? Or perhaps you simply love the gracious rambling brick Victorian style? I’d love to hear what attracted you to this Americus print?

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.
