today seemed to be a good day to introduce you to one of my most favorite artists.
his work is inspiring to me & happy to look at.
the colors he uses are calming & vibrant & perfect all at the same time.
the titles of his pieces are half of what i love so much. he uses a lot of the same 'characters' in his paintings & each title seems to tell a little bit of a story to me.
here are just a very few that i love. i can't even say they are my favorites. almost every piece of his is a new favorite to me.
"Although this scene may look dire, Alfred meant Mabel & George no mortal harm. He had been courting her for months & thought marriage was at hand."
"Arriving in Stockholm"
"alfred, louis & francois after 12 years of preparation were surprised to find a cafe at the top of mount Everest."
"Alfred was obviously underdressed for his induction into the Adventures Hall of Fame."
"I shot an arrow into the air, they fell to the earth in Berkeley Square."
you can find mattes work on his flickr (link above) or also on etsy.
