This beautifully designed rendition of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel, Belleair, Florida was designed by former St. Petersburg artist, Janice James, whose specialty is Florida architecture, from small quaint beach houses to historic landmarks, landscapes, seascapes and private homes done in the traditional manner. Limited edition prints have been made of several landmarks in St. Petersburg and Tampa including not only the Biltmore but the Vinoy and the Don Cesar Hotels in St. Petersburg..   She now is retired in Sun City, Florida with her husband of 55 years. She has three daughters and one granddaughter. Ms. James has been painting since the age of nine and has studied at the Ringling Art School in Sarasota, Florida and the University of Miami on an art scholarship.  She became a commercial artist designing layouts and illustrating fashions for newspaper advertising.  She is a Signature member of the Florida Watercolor Society.  Her paintings have won recognition, which includes: Best of Show and first prizes in Miami, St. Petersburg and Sarasota.   Please note that the actual size of the art work on the T shirt you purchase is approximately: 10" x 6.5". In order to protect the artist's work from copycats, I have purposely decreased the size of the photo.  We sincerely thank Mrs. James for letting us use her beautiful watercolor to help us to continue to save and preserve the Biltmore.

Biltmore Hotel Art by Local Artist Misao Adachi

  www.SaveTheBiltmore.com
 

This beautifully designed rendition of the Belleview Biltmore Hotel, Belleair, Florida was designed by St. Petersburg artist, Misao Adachi who was born in Miyagi Prefecture in Northern Japan and grew up and studied painting in Tokyo.  His formal training as a painter was completed during ten years of apprenticeships with two Japanese Masters of the kanban tradition. The learning process was slow and demanding, but such training nurtured the patience needed for the intricate details characteristic of Misao's work today - paintings that represent both this traditional training and his living experience in the States.   Kanban are hand-painted posters or billboards used to advertise movies, variety shows and the like, and Misao's training was conducted in a purely traditional manner.   The majority of Misao paintings are in acrylics and oils, although he also works with watercolors.   In addition to painting the historic 1897 Belleview Biltmore Hotel, he has also painted the historic Don Cesar and Vinoy Hotels in St. Petersburg, Florida.  His objective in life-like paintings of people, animals, flowers, trees, and the like is not to create reproductions of his subjects, but to capture the essence of their being.   Misao's own cultural background has taught him that every natural being has a 'spirit' and his work manifests an inherent desire to give expression to the universality of these 'spirits.'   After traveling back and forth between Japan and the States and working as a commercial artist and illustrator in both countries during the past twenty years, Misao and his family recently relocated in St. Petersburg, Florida.   His studio is located in Salt Creek Artworks on 4th Street in St Petersburg, and his website is: www.misaoadachi.com.

          Once it Stood         

          Developers took this hotel's power
            And its landmark title
            And smashed it to the ground.
            Gone are its walls
            Its grace, its charm, its people.
            How can we save our landmarks
            In the war between
            Developers, politicians, lawyers
            And people who care?

 

Save the Biltmore from a fate like this!
