beachy greys

August 28, 2012



I have been happily painting my heart out
this month and wanted to share some work
(a few acrylics on canvas are available in my shop
and are priced as low as prints).
Update:
they all sold right away so i'll be stocking
the shop with more very soon!




Do you imagine me a tidy painter?
Oh hark. You would be mistaken.



I placed this one in the living room and will
show you later.



I have been flirting with metallics lately so some
sparkle subtly in daylight and magically at night.
 These are available at my shop right here. (keep checking back
as they sell quickly!)




I lacked courage to pick up a paintbrush
until Melissa 
(whose landscapes and fashion sketches decorate our home)
urged me to do it.




The driftwood sailboat was
created by the lovely hands of Michelle
of Emerald Cove.





Need a tranquil moment for that gallery wall?
Perhaps a visit to the shop will help!

* * *
Our actual anniversary is tomorrow
when I will be whisked away to
an urban wonderland
for delightful shenanigans.
* * * * *
Thank you for your wishes and love;
you have brightened my days
and made my heart grow.

Peace to you right where you are.

  4. Good grief, these are just gorgeous paintings. Your colors are perfect. You have inspired me to do something like this... I had something similar cooking in my brain, so this is just another affirmation to go with it!

  14. AND you paint???????? What DON'T You do!!! These are SOOOO gorgeous. When is your exhibit? These are some of my absolute most favorite colors, they remind me of my reclaimed stone floors in my kitchen and you know how I feel about those:)
    Absolutely gorgeous Michele, think you need your own website to sell your art. The palette is breathtaking!

  27. Your art has soul, M and I feel that whenever I see the ones you painted for my little Matthew. He already loves it... I believe he feels good when he sees it... like I do.
