|Hatch’s Fish Market in Wellfleet, Cape Cod~ Original Watercolor Painting|
This original watercolor painting depicts the charming beach town of Wellfleet in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Hatch’s Fish Market is in the center of Wellfleet and a must stop for any beach goer to pick up fresh fish and produce to cook up at the end of a sun burnt day enjoying the beaches of Cape Cod. Landscape paintings in the home offer a window to the world. This Cape Cod painting is original and signed by the artist. A mother and son are walking from the market in their casual beach clothes, the little boy topless in a bathing suit and flip flops as he enjoys a juicy peach with the nectar juice running down his fingers. This painting of Cape Cod also includes the parking lot filled with tourist cars that have their bikes on the back– I am sure you remember going on vacation and taking long lazy bike rides and then ending the day with an ice cream or fish fry. A special artistic element of this original painting are the abstract depiction of the trees and foliage in the background of the watercolor landscape.
Title: Hatches Fish Market
Size: 11×15″ Original Watercolor Painting

What a beautiful grouping and stunning painting! Makes me long for summer & family fun.
Much of my summer vacations growing up were spent locally on Long Island. My favorites memories were the weeks we spent in Montauk. Endless summer days playing at the beach with family & friends. Life always seemed more simple at the beach. Salt in your hair ,sand in your toes and flip flops in hand.
Cape Cod has always held a special place in my heart. From the time I was a little girl, my family vacationed there every summer. Since my father traveled to the Cape often on business, we were fortunate to visit the Cape off season as well. Some of my earliest memories (over 45 years ago!) are of the original Thompson’s Clam Bar jingle playing on transistor radios at the beach, frozen Milky Way Bars bought at the Smuggler’s Beach Snack Bar, finding giant Conch seashells – with snails still inside, and flying kites in winter on the beach. We visited local libraries, churches, windmills, the herring run, galleries, and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Park. Simpler times, simply fun. I carried on the tradition with my own children and we still vacation there each year. So much has changed over the years, but Cape Cod’s beaches remain unparalleled.
When putting together the "Longing for the Sea" treasury, I selected items that for me evoked memories of Cape Cod. I hope it transports you there as well. The sea is calling…
Love Cape Cod! Such diversity- history, nature, & art all on this beautiful ground. Three of my best memories of the Cape are the amazing whale watch out of Provincetown with the oceanograhic institute there. Saw boat loads of whales (pardon the pun) and many different varieties on the Stellwagen Bank off the coast. The antiquing on the Old King's Highway that skirts Cape Cod Bay is like a step back in time, love the quaint villages. And one of my best memories is doing some detective work and locating Hopper's old house on the bayside where he had a studio. No one wanted to tell us. I guess they thought we would disturb the current owners. Of course we did not! We walked on the beach, found it, and took a photo from a distance. Made my day. I probably couldn't find it now if my life depended on it!
Thank you for including my Blue Reef vintage book from my Etsy shop SeaSeaRider. I also have a lovely early 1900s Nantucket.
I long to go back to the Cape to watch the melodic flashing of Chatham Light and see Jupiter shining on the ocean.
