Harrison Howard has the enviable artistic touch-- he is a wizard with a paint brush. Painting screens, panels, easel paintings, and watercolors, with a focus on decorative themes, architectural subjects, chinoiseries, and scenic's, birds, animals and floral motifs figure prominently in his collection. His ability to capture the sense of fun and lightness of his subject matter makes him very special indeed. With a longstanding decorator following, now you can snap up his pieces simply by clicking through to his online gallery website. Here are some of my favorite examples of his work. Long live Chinoiserie. Simply divine.
