Mattsart Fine Art Paintings

Hi, I'm Matt Hamblen - thanks for visiting my shop at

My paintings are an expression of God's love, joy, life, grace, gratitude, giving, Mother Earth, nature, humanity and kindness as best my soul can conjure up. I hope you can see a presence of all these things in my work.

I was born with a passion to create, and I've been artistic all my life.
I began with pencils as a tot, took a very long, strange (but awesome) trip on a side road as a deadhead musician when I was in my teens, and eventually came back to my first true love, art (painting).

Ever since I began painting seriously back in the 90's, I've found that it's a cathartic experience.

I take great pride in assuring every customer is happy. I'm incredibly proud to be in this business as a maker, and offering an honest product at a great price that you won't find anywhere else. I abhor greed in every sense (good Lord, what has happened to us since the 70s???) and I only strive to survive.

Every stroke is filled with love for what I do, the blessings I have been given, the desire to share, and the wonderful people who support me.

Art goes back in my family for many generations, even with some family fame in the Boston area in the 1800s via Sturtevant Hamblin (Google him).

I was raised traveling to art shows up and down the East coast with my father's painting business (Robert Hamblen of Vermont). It's true what they say, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and in this case it's been rolling for a whole lotta generations. Art is truly in the blood.

I am eternally grateful to EVERYONE who has helped make this possible over the years.

Thanks very much for reading about me ☺️ Have a great day, and please let me know if there's anything I can help you with.

Additional policies and FAQs
Damage is an extremely rare event, and it's only happened to me once in 20 years, and that was an international shipment during the Christmas rush, but still, I do ask all customers to inspect their boxes and paintings immediately upon delivery.

In the extremely odd even that your painting has arrived damaged;

1) Take clear pictures of all damage, including the damaged box.
NOTE: This MUST be done for insurance purposes or I cannot be responsible.

2) Please contact me right away, and I'll file a claim immediately using your pictures.

MY GUARANTEE: is a great, honest company, still, my experience is that insurance claims take a little time, and I appreciate your working with me, taking pics that tell the story, and being patient.
Even if the insurance doesn't reimburse us for some reason, at the end of the claims process, NO worries.
I will reimburse you for the cost of the painting at the end of the claims process anyway, as long as you've cooperated with me, taken pictures, and have made every effort so thatwe both get reimbursed.
I've never had this scenario happen before, but if it does, I'll take the hit before I let you down, so your happiness is guaranteed.
