Ocean View Fishing Pier - Solarplate Etching

The Ocean View Fishing Pier in Norfolk, Virginia is the longest free-standing fishing pier in North America at 1,690 feet. It was built on the site of the former Harrison's Pier which was a very popular fishing spot until it was destroyed by Tropical Storm Isabel in 2003.  It was a good subject for my next solarplate etching of historic Norfolk places. I love that there are great views of the Chesapeake Bay from there!


  1. Another beautiful architectural novelty, realized frontally with this classic pier perspective. This work is superbly well presented. A new exhibition soon?

  2. I’m planning to research possible exhibition spaces soon. I have one that I would love. I will see if they are agreeable!
