Enjoying Art and Artful Settings

On the way home from a writer's meeting today, we stopped by the home of art collectors who own three of my abstract paintings. Their modern home, set on seven acres of wooded land, is a perfect setting for art work. Each of the clear glass windows and French doors are pieces of art themselves--showing glowing autumn colors. Falls in the river below their house can be seen clearly from several of the windows and doors. Each room is decorated perfectly, bedspreads, lampshades, and vases all selected to enhance walls filled with beautiful, mostly abstract pieces of original art. Seeing exquisite art work in this natural wooded setting was like visiting a museum or an art gallery only much better. I love woods, and I love original art.

Are those yours - on the wall? They're beautiful.

I hope you're having fun on your blog book tour!

Thanks, Helen. Yes, that's my art. I was thrilled to see it hanging in this beautiful space!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That must be wild to visit someone's home and see your work on the wall!

I love it, Alex. A few years ago a new Marriott bought 13 pieces of my art, several were 4 x 6 feet. You can imagine my excitement every time I visited that hotel!

The book tour sounds wonderful, and your art is beautiful, Monti. I had a chance to post a link to this on my facebook page yesterday, so hopefully, some friends will drop by. It must be quite a moment to view your own artwork on display in such a lovely setting. What wonderful creativity, bravo! --Daisy in SunnyRoomStudio (and thanks for your comment this morning; I left you a reply!)

Monti, your art is beautiful! Imagine, being able to create such beauty AND write!

Looking forward to your visit with me tomorrow on my blog. :)
