A few months ago, I was looking through an old Dwell magazine, (April 2006 to be exact) and came upon a great article by Sam Grawe about the Cincinnati artist & designer, Charles Harper.

I also adore this:

Then, Grace at Design*Sponge mentioned him & I knew he was something special. I was able to find some more of his work online through Fabulous Frames & Art:

Cardinal Couple
I love bird imagery, and since both my parents are from St. Louis, MO, I have always been fond of Cardinals. I love the clean lines & simple shapes in Charley Harper’s paintings. His art is very inspiring. A few days ago, the Design*Sponge posted that designer Todd Oldham was releasing a book about his work:

I can’t wait to get my hands on this. I also heard that this weekend, Charley Harper passed away. The world will miss his unique view of nature & life.

    I have several of Charles Harper’s prints. All are signed and numbered. Would you be interested in them?

    If you’re a fan of Charley Harper’s prints, check out info about this upcoming exhibit of his long-lost original paintings for Ford Times and Lincoln Mercury Times magazines. It’s opening next Saturday at Fabulous Frames & Art in Montgomery, Ohio, but it will hopefully travel.
