Nathaniel Hawthorne Birthplace - Historic Salem 5x7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This historic Salem greeting card features a brilliant view of the Nathaniel Hawthorne birthplace. This home was originally located at 27 Union Street in Salem, Massachusetts. In 1958 it was moved to its current location adjacent to The House of Seven Gables, a house made famous by Hawthorne's novel of that name. Hawthorne's birthplace was a home built by his grandfather sometime between 1730 and 1745. It's a pretty classic Georgian style of architecture with its symmetrical arrangement of doors and windows. Nathaniel Hawthorne was born on the second floor on July 4th in 1804 surrounded by extended family who shared the home. The future author spent the first four years of his life in this Salem home until his family moved upon his father's death.

This artwork was inspired by my visit to Salem years ago. It was a sunny winter afternoon and the bare tree branches traced their shadows in the bright warm sunlight. I have always loved the combination of cold winter blue and warm light. There's something warm and comforting about it. Do you agree?
