    Art Sentiment & Motivation
    This painting depicts SHED 2 of the historic Eastern Market; built in 1898 making this structure almost 120 years old! SHED 2 is the only last remaining SHED left standing from that era. Other sheds of similar old Victorian architecture have been long demolished. SHEDS 1 & 2 was the original construction site of the market; it serves to remind all visitors that the Detroit Eastern Market began at this southern location; SHED 2 is the true “center of it all.”

    In the early days, structures were erected to protect farmers from the weather elements called “SHEDS.” Many visitors today are not aware of the rich history of what this iconic Eastern Market Detroit structure represents.

    Eastern Market Detroit—Capturing the Historic Spirit
    These prints are created as a tribute to the Farmers Market. To transfer the ambience of the market to your home, raise the level of appreciation and educate visitors of the rich history of this century-time-old market place, hence the birth of the… “Spirit of Eastern Market Detroit” art series.

    These Eastern Market art prints will make a nice gift to any Eastern Market lover.

    About the Artist
    I created this art of passion to capture the true spirit of SHED 2 to raise citizen awareness of this one-of-a-kind city treasure & historic jewel.

    My first visit to the Eastern Market was nearly 60 years ago. It was an early morning—just before daybreak— and very cool. The Detroit Eastern Market was already bustling with activity and the air was filled with the haggling of buyers and sellers, the humming & rumblings of many transportation vehicles. The background noises created a cacophony of sounds that would become the unique voice of the Eastern Market Detroit.  Since that time, I have been under the magical spell of the 150-year-old historic market. At the beginning of every summer, the market calls out to me… “come and visit, Flower Day is near.”

    Recently retired—my professional background was very technical; involving corporate enterprise wide eLearning, website development and several programming languages. I can now spend more time on an affinity I have for both the Eastern Market and wetland bird photography—of which I won a National Geographic contest several years ago.

    The Paper
    Because Paper can greatly influence the appearance of the print, the art is professionally printed on acid-free archival paper with a water-resistant surface. It is made from 100% cotton fiber and is acid and lignin free. All substrate paper sources meet’s archival standards set by Fine Art Trade Guilds for pH and acid content and light fastness; you are assured of receiving the highest quality you are paying for.

    You are getting a truly expensive print for a good price, not the other way around.

    Glicee – True Fine Art Gallery Prints—Only the Best!
    I use only certified Giclee commercial printers.

    What is Glicee?
    It is a printing method. Giclee printing process gives reproduction art that touch of original canvas painting, nostalgia look & feel; the art will not yellow or fade over time.

    Protective Coating
    Additionally, each print is sprayed with a MOAB protective coating, preventing scratches, fingerprints, scuffing. MOAB is designed to help eliminate these threats while enhancing the surface of the paper.

    Can You Spot Bad Plants at Eastern Market during Flower Day?

    DID YOU KNOW  – 3 Signs plants will die in your garden.

    Let’s Take a Closer Look – Before You Buy

    •  Spot check under blooms for small white aphids – a poor greenhouse insecticide issue passes to customer.
    • Check for dark stems at base of plant – fungus over moister, watering issues can cause gardening issues.
    • Brush hand over top of blooms, if blooms pop off, plants are suffering from light deprivation; plants been on truck to long. Growers sometimes leave plants on trucks and return to the market with the same load several times vs unloading at greenhouses.

    Plant Stress

    Some growers leave plants on trucks for extended periods of time. This causes sun deprivation, it is evident by darkness at the base stem of the plants. Although they may have pretty top blooms, these plants might experience fungus problems and your summer garden will visually suffer.

    EMFBG TIP 2 – More Rain, Lower Flower Prices

    One very rainy day occasion, I drove around an came by a school that ran an annual flower sale fundraiser. It was a gloomy rainy day; overcast and clouds killed the flower buying mood. I stopped by and chatted with the participants, giving honest compliments on all the great looking plants they had on display. There were lots of backyard Hostas and other expensive perennials. I had a good time talking with the event hosts. I started to buy a couple of items, but wait! This moment represents an opportunity for bargains, deals, and discounts! I estimated there was several hundred dollars worth of retail inventory of perennial plants, tulips, Hostas several varieties, Pachysandra, lilies, black-eyed Susan’s, asters, lavender, and others. It was near the end of the evening, rainy, and gloomy. I didn’t have my truck but made an offer to buy the remaining inventory for $200 if the guy with the pickup truck will take all this stuff to my house. They gladly accepted the offer because nobody wanted to load all those muddy plants back into their vehicles.

    Rainy Day at Eastern Market

    I gladly tipped the driver $50 for a ten-minute drive.

    Savings: There had to be appx $600 in fully mature, healthy garden plants with 90% being perennials.

    Drive around, check for street banners, small town local papers, make Local Flower Fund Raisers part of your flower hunting routine.

    Cash Talks – Bargains, Deals, Discounts

    It is always cash, it is never cards or checkbook, it is always cash, and compliments.

    Quantities
    Always purchase bulk, try to make the big deal of the summer from one spot.

    When to Shop Around
    Keep an eye out for time of day–evenings is best, weather–rainy.

    Readership
    Eastern Market Shoppers pre-armed with the right bargaining knowledge can buy premium garden flowers, at reduced prices. Additionally, shoppers can apply the same techniques at Big Box Stores, Roadside Flower Stands, and Greenhouses–2X opprotunities may exist even during Flower Day.
