A creative mind that I have been a huge fan of for a long time is Matteart (who I discovered on Etsy). He is an amazing artist currently residing in Portland Oregon. His pieces are fun and inspirational and I am glad to say that 5 of his beautiful prints are now displayed in my front stairwell! It was a tough decision, but here are the 5 prints that my husband and I chose.
|"Lord Admiral Hiratio Byrd following his true dream became a florist after the great war"|
|"Sir Milton Crawford and his wife Lady Olivia Crawford return to London after a weekend in the country"|
|"Alfred was obviously underdressed for his induction into the Adventurers Hall of Fame"|
Another artist that I featured on a past wishlist was Catalin. Her beautiful paintings are mesmerizing! When I first joined Etsy several years ago I was so taken with this shop that I sent them a message just to tell them how wonderful I thought their pieces were although at the time I had nowhere to display one of them. Well, it took 3 years, but here is the custom painting she did for us!
It is currently in the mail making it's way to Canada! I can't wait to hang this gorgeous painting above my piano where I can enjoy it every day. To see Catalin's entire collection of work visit her web-shop
Pictures of my fun, finished, furnished house coming soon!
