    Eastern Market Flowers – Geraniums

    Eastern Market Flowers – Big Blooming!  Geraniums are one of my old-fashioned gardening favorites. They fill the surrounding view with a rainbow of bright invigorating color. Standing tall or short in the rear or the front border of the garden. Then, later in the summer, they are in full bloom, they dominate any garden. Large hanging basket or in tall clay pots make great Detroit Mother’s Day Gifts!

    Artwork  Sentiment & Motivation
    This painting depicts a watercolor picture SHED 2 of the historic Eastern Market; built back 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.

    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.
