Sanitary paintings

Sanitary street view, 5.5 x 8.5" watercolor
Earlier this year I received a commission to paint the Sanitary Restaurant and Fish Market, a landmark restaurant on the waterfront in Morehead City, NC. The popular eatery has a history that dates back to 1938. As you might guess, the Sanitary was first a fish market, then a restaurant. I can maybe get why somewhat would call their fish market “Sanitary”, but don’t we all want to assume a restaurant is clean? Can you think of a worse name for a restaurant? The name stuck. And now I bet they sell as many Sanitary t-shirts out of the place as they do seafood.

This small watercolor, like my other Morehead City paintings in recent blog posts is now hanging in Vision Gallery in Atlantic Beach. $195 each including frame.
