My Art: Where My Art Lives {a Beach House}

It has been a few weeks since I picked up

a paintbrush so I felt all fancy to see images

of a pair of abstract panels created for Michelle at

Emerald Cove.

Do you know Michelle?

Then you already love her.

She is one of those ladies with a fabulous eye,

creativity, and a passion for coastal touches.

Her home is a beachy wonderland.
We will forgive her parents for putting that extra L
in her beautiful name.

(For awhile there, when I wasn’t writing,

I was creating lots of arty accessories

for folks all over the planet. I love the creation

part but not the marketing, PR, and business side.

Still deciding what I will sell next at my etsy shop.)

Michelle often uses driftwood in her creations.

Hues of sea, sand, and sky remind

me of my beachy sista and were a natural choice

for this blogger with so much heart and soul.

Isn’t all the white and bright fabulous?

Peace to you right where you are.

    I consider sweet Michelle my "lil sis". When we met for the first time at a flea market last summer, it was like we had always known each other. She is a dear heart, a creative artist, and has an "old" soul – being so mature in her thinking and talent. I love her dearly! She's the best!! ♥

    I saw your art there and thought It looked perfect in michelle's (who I love) home!
    Real artists never like the PR and marketing side of the biz… 😉

    Oh my beachy sista you are the sweetest! Thank for such a beautiful post, and yes, we will forgive my parents for that little letter. 🙂 I love your art and I love looking at your beautiful paintings, they always make me smile. I so agree about the PR part too, artists just want to create and I think you need to pick up that brush more often. 🙂
    Thank you all for your wonderful comments too, you sure know how to make gals feel good.

    They should really live at my house… (:

    Does everyone with the name Michelle (one or 2 Ls make no difference) live in a beautiful home?

    Michelle is one of the sweetest ladies in blogworld! I love her beachy style and her gorgeous home! Thanks for the beautiful post!

    Still trying to decide how she got that starfish inside the glass lamp!!!! Of course I love her "white" house…..and I agree with you, marketing is just not my thing…..I suck at it.

  18. January 20, 2012 / 12:46 am

    I love vintage but I also love contemporary and I am crazy about those paintings. Love to mix the two. If I had a beach house (my wish someday) I would have to have those. 🙂

    We don't have any modern in our home…But I still love it in the right mix. You have done a great job of marrying your art work to your decor. Love your images.
