You may remember my total adoration of artist Matte Stephens’ work (see here) so it will please you to know I am now the proud owner of one of his fabulous prints. I’m doubly excited because this particular one is called “Happy Town in France.” I mean, come on. The colors are so much more vibrant and cheery than this picture suggests. The print arrived wonderfully packed with a sweet handwritten note from Matte last week, and this weekend I finally found the perfect frame for it. Now I just have to find the perfect spot to hang it, but I can’t stop snuggling it long enough. I love how whimsical and sweet his work is, and I’m afraid this print is kind of like a gateway drug; I need more of them, now.
Valentine’s Day is swiftly approaching, so if you’re looking for the perfect, original gift for someone special (or yourself!), definitely check out Matte’s shop. This one would make such a romantic present.
