My Art: Where My Art Lives {Tone on Tone}

Pinch me.
One of my lil’ seascapes
lives in a beautiful space designed
by my friend Loi of
Tone on Tone Antiques
near Washington, D.C.

mine’s the little leaning canvas, via

It’s in his home office, and I am
sure you are already familiar with Loi’s
delicious Swedish antique shop,
dreamy gardens, and amazing travels.
His home, shop, gardens and site will inspire you.


Yes, it’s beyond craaaaazay that pieces of my art
live in homes sprinkled across the globe.
I’m a poet after all.
Life keeps surprising me.


Tone-on-Tone’s masterful blue garden
will soon make a royal appearance in
Southern Living magazine…watch for it!


What I imagine a corner of heaven resembles.


Thanks for reading!

Peace to you right where you are.

    I can't think of anything nicer than having a piece of my creativity in such a lovely place. It looks perfect there too.

    Hello my favorite,

    I just left Loi a comment! So happy to see your piece in his fantastic home!

    I am also a happy owner! (And I have some other ideas for you!).

    Not much blogging here this summer. My head is spinning… Will vent soon…

    Necklaces not ready yet! (Yes, shame on me). Had to make some changes. Will arrive soon together with another little something).

    Expect a call very soon.

    Thinking of you.

    Tom and I love our beautiful seascapes, Michele! Your other painting is currently resting on my nightstand, and I get to admire it first thing in the morning and right before bedtime. Sweet dreams, indeed 🙂
    Thank you, my friend.
    Have a wonderful 4th ahead!!

    not too proud to admit the exquisite LOI has made this limping poet with the Angelina effect feel fabulously famous at a most vulnerable time. i do plan to savor the emotion for as long as possible and will likely annoy my beloved and our offspring as i bask in the sunshine.

    thanks so much for all the kind words and smiles, crazy kids.

    Your artwork is so perfect with the color pallete in Loi's serene and lovely home. How fun to see it there!!

    Thanks for the link, there are several great photos posted there. I love that clock; that is a really unique and interesting design. That garden looks great as well, that looks like a fantastic looking lawn. The purple lavender looks great. I really like the beautiful abstract art as well.
