Edward Hopper

I enjoy many types of art but Edward Hopper's lighthouse paintings will always be dear to my heart.

I always seem to receive snail mail with Hopper stamps...I don't think this is a coincidence.

Erin, I've always loved Hopper's work and living within walking distance of the National Gallery when I was in DC I saw plenty of great work. But I when I moved to the North Shore I was delighted to learn that Hopper had lived in Gloucester and painted there. The Cape Ann Museum has some of his Cape Ann paintings. Lovely.

Omg, I drive THREE towns over just to get those stamps! And, it took me nearly a YEAR to even track them down there. Glad to hear I'm not alone in the details details nuthouse ;)

I had an art teacher who would visit the MET just to see the HOPPER! Truly amazing and how wonderful to receive mail with those artful stamps.
