Block Island is a small, beautiful island (9.7 square miles) off the coast of Rhode Island. I grew up in nearby Connecticut and was able to visit BI several times during my childhood. The island has a very unique shape and spans just 3 x 7 miles.
This is my artsy + abstract watercolor map painting of Block Island. It was created by defining positive and negative values within the land masses, and painting the result using one of my color schemes. Every time I paint this map, it will be a ONE OF A KIND piece of art, because I am painting it with a combination of two different watercolor paints, which will mix in different ways each time. This painting would be a special keepsake or gift for Block Island wedding parties, vacationers, and the like! I offer it in 8×10″ size, with an optional mat (suitable for an 11×14″ frame).
If desired, you can personalize the painting by requesting a dot or other symbol at a specific location on the map. I can paint that as a contrasting color of your choice. In addition, I can add the latitude and longitude or other personalized text in the map title.
This is the third painting design in my new watercolor map series of Places You Love – check them out!
