BOSTON Watercolor City Blocks Map: ORIGINAL PAINTING (Commission)


Notify me when back in stock

BOSTON, Massachusetts.

Original Watercolor City Blocks Map. With each block painted by hand, an original watercolor of Boston's unique city plan is just stunning on the wall of your office, business or home, or a wonderful wedding, graduation or anniversary gift to be treasured.

Commission this map in a color of your choice. I will contact you soon after your purchase of this commission. With this commission, you are also entitled to purchase up to ten prints of your piece at half cost! Give prints as gifts to friends and family. Keep a print for yourself if the original is a gift. Win-win.

I love the complexity and density of historic cities! It's fascinating to roam with your eye over the core of Boston with its rivers and docks, abstracted into a figure/ground, or block, plan. The map-drawing centers on the heart of Boston on the Shawmut Peninsula, surrounded by the Massachusetts Bay and the Charles River and extends to Bunker Hill and Charlestown and portions of East Boston, Seaport District and the Back Bay. The iconic pathways of Boston Common and Boston Public Garden, as well as pedestrian path around City Hall and Faneuil Hall are drawn and the gnarly web of highways has been modified to reflect the "Big Dig", showing the tunneled roads in color, as opposed to white.

I will paint Your Map in a color of your choice. Tell me what color this special place conjures for you, or choose a color from the menu.  Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for completion.
