Florence, the artist is a very good friend of mine. She paints incredibly realistic watercolors and sells prints of all of them. Check out her work.
She currently has her paintings displayed at the R. Michelson Gallery in Northampton, MA
Here's one of her paintings.
Here's something else that I find interesting!
These are very old ceramic tiles in the foyers of some of the rowhouses in Baltimore and DC.
I think they are beautiful and so decorative. You just see these much anymore and certainly no one renovating houses is putting anything like these in them. They are something that will eventually be lost forever. I wonder how many houses had them at one time but they have been removed...
