A Flower Hat

Disclaimer: This is not a portrait of me.

It is A Flower Hat., gouache illustration by one of my favorite artists, Matte Stephens
I have been following Matte's work for years and I own several of his prints, including this one, of which I have the very first edition. 
Because I am special that way.

The very same It's-A-Portrait-But-Technically-Not-My-Portrait thing happened with Lola and Katie Daisy a few months ago. She is such a superstar.

And just like Lola's portrait, I felt compelled to gussy up the framing mat just a touch. 
A little gold pen went a long way.

If you have a minute, pop over to Matte's print shop.


  1. Hello AuntPeaches,
    Love the way you write.
    I'ld look up Fiep Westendorp, a Dutch illustrator. I think you'll like her work too.
    Take care,

  2. Beautiful dahling! Adore that print!

  3. Thank you very much for the nice post about my work. I am so happy you like your print!

  4. I know I am probably posting in the wrong spot. Can you tell me how to pull up on your website, coffee filter flowers only?

    Thank you
