About This Image

On my first visit to New York City, this view of the Statue of Liberty from New York Harbor was as close as I would get to that iconic statue. On the day I had intended to go, the weather was just not that great, and it was a short trip with friends anyway. There’s only so much that can be packed into a handful of days in NYC reasonably.

Having since returned to New York City and having gotten a much closer look at the Statue of Liberty, I can safely say that the view from the water, as seen here in this print, is probably the most iconic view of that old American landmark. You can really imagine how those immigrants on boats heading to Ellis Island must have felt upon reaching the fabled shores of the USA. I don’t think it’s possible to see Lady Liberty without thinking of those famous words from Emma Lazarus’ poem The New Colossus.

…”Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

 It’s certainly an amazing landmark and my print was intended to capture that overwhelming sense of wonder. She truly feels like a giant colossus lighting the way to freedom when you see her gazing out across the sea with her lamp held high.

Have you too felt that sense of wonder gazing up at the Statue of Liberty from the deck of a boat? Or is it a matter of patriotism and you simply love the ideals of freedom that she represents? Either way, I think this print captures those emotions.

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.
