Harrison Howard's Chinoiserie Art for Caspari

One of my favorite artists of all time, Harrison Howard, now has one of his Chinoiserie themed paintings featured on a new line of paper goods from Caspari. "Garden Folly" is a perfect choice for the plates, napkins, place cards and more which are offered in this new summer selection.The perfectly executed, yet oh so whimsical details will take your breath away.

Harrison is renowned for his intricate works of art which include The Flower Lady,  Shells,  and the Chinoiseries Series. His murals and wall panels are well known in Southern California (he lives in the Point Loma area of San Diego) as well as throughout the world as his client list is stellar.

Please enjoy some of his works of art featured here and then visit his website, to peruse and learn more about this exptemely talented artist. Even one of his paintings or lithographs will be stunning in any room of your home, although in pairs they make a very dramatic statement.

The Architect

Rendezvous at Night

According to Harrison, on his paintings, " They are the product of numerous other influences as well, including many of the things surrounding me in everyday life, and extending to a passion for many areas of the decorative arts, such as the fanciful Chinoiserie designs of the 18th century Frenchman, Jean Pillement. In particular, I would acknowledge the countless other artists through the ages, too numerous too mention here, whose work has electrified my imagination. My pictures are aimed at the fundamental pleasure that almost all of us take in imaginative and quirky ideas."

Hi Karena, How are you fée long m'y dear friend.
I love the Rendezvous at Night and the SeaHorse :)
I've seen where the decorative napkins in these similar designs have be deccpoged to piece of furniture that has a door panel, even the gift wrapping papers were used and when done and aged with a antiquing glaze and sealed up for lasting beauty they looked amazing almost a good as the high end hand made paper wallpapers.

Another beautiful post from you my dear.
See you soon.


Ps. I hope you have been able to relax now that you are home.

Good morning dearest Karena! LOVELY share this morning with the brightest of colors and also muted grace in antiqued perfection. My dear, I just read your comment on my post; this means you will not be participating? I am so sorry to hear you can't. I understand. It's not too difficult; you just would come up with a post celebrating a part of Europe you'd love to share, and it could be on the art. But I know. I will take your name off the list. Thank you for letting me know. Anita

Karena, Harrison Howard is a favorite of mine, too - an artist who I find very inspiring, so I love leaning more about what influences his art! Those paper plates and napkins are as lovely as fine china and linens, don't you think? Hope you've had a lovely week! XOXO

How magic are these paper pieces!
They scream for a Summer party on the deck with pretty vintage lanterns!

I have your posts feeding into my emails now. My sidebar has been misbehaving...not updating some of my friends.

Have a great week, Karena!
