Walter Inglis Anderson

Today is a typical Monday around here...baby Stephen and I have walked, cleaned, grocery shopped, and now he's taking a nap! Unfortunately I didn't document our weekend very well though we had a fun and busy time. So... what came to mind to share this afternoon is a little info about one of my favorite artist.

Walter Inglis Anderson (1903-1965)

He is a Mississippi artist who painted hundreds of images of the Mississippi gulf coast, especially wildlife and nature scenes. I love his work because 1) it is pleasing to the eye 2) the reproductions are very affordable and 3) he was a Mississippian (my home state) which makes the prints I have very personal.

When expecting Stephen, we did not find out whether we were having a boy or girl. This made getting a nursery together a little more challenging (not that I had any grand plans). The only thing I just "had to have" for the baby's room was some Walter Anderson water color prints, ordered from Realizations.

These hang over one of the twin beds in Stephen's room.

You can order most prints in black and white or pay a little extra to have them water colored.

I like color.

A fun thing to do is order a black and white and water color it yourself. I have done this with a few post cards.

Another print I have is Big Turtle. My dad bought this for me last summer on a family trip to Ocean Springs, MS. It is also in Stephen's nursery.

Hope you enjoy...happy Monday.
