In Every Detail...An Artist Lives Here

 Burlap Luxe Home

Edited surroundings continue a pale theme.
For me its a pallet that calms and inspires my art.
It allows me complete silence in all areas of creating.

 Dried Black~Eye Susan's

I find useful and beauty in the found; a European countryside design
sourced from last years dried garden bed.

Placed tabletop of curiosity out of the ordinary...
Yet, inspires alongside vintage pieces naturally.

Hand Painted Roses

24"x24" painted like centuries ago before the 16th century, where artist  painted
art to wood panels.
Panel painting is a very old art, and a very prestigious medium.
I frame in my wood boards with weathered and aged salvaged stakes,
giving each piece of art the feel and look of wrapped canvases.

Dear Dore,I just came here to see if you had a new blog post and "Yay" you did! So happy to see your new rose paintings featured here! I am so happy to have two of these rose art pieces added to my collection of your art in my home. They are even more beautiful in person. I love the muted tones and the texture they have which gives them a rustic and old feel.You don't see that in printed art pieces. They are truly one of a kind. I always enjoy seeing your home and the beautiful patinas of your pieces you have transformed. You know I love those candle sconces! ;)Your welcome on my reviews of your paintings! It was a pleasure because I love them!

Beautiful rose paintings...

If only I can find a salvaged French candle sconce on my trip to Paris late Aug/early Sept.... Flea market shopping is on my list of to-do this trip with my sister. Fabric and papers are also on my list.

Doré, this is it. An artist lives there, oh yes, and this one has that french touch, because an artist knows, when it is enough. Enough to stop, not to overdo (I hope, this word does exist in English...)
Cela suffit. Absolutely. Reducing to the maximum. Stile in every detail, so thoughtful.
This is how you are. This is, for what I admire you so. Hugs from me, your friend Méa


was für schöne und erfrischende Bilder.

Oh those fantastique Rose paintings I adore. I love how strikingly different in juxtaposition they are, not an easy achievement for most. From the free spirited artistic edginess with the unexpected energy to the beautifully depicted roses of beauty you have out did yourself with these.
I especially love 12x12 painting for the flexibility of moving them around the house, leaning them on shelves or mantels. Wherever you need an instant dose of beauty. Simply beautiful mon Amie.

You have such wonderful instincts, Dore! There is so much natural beauty in the world, and you have lovely way of bringing attention to it. Your new rose paintings have that same spirit about them. Just lovely.

I love your artist inspired summery cottage with all it's layers of beauty and creativity. The transformation of your salvaged sconces to their new weathered pale gray finish is such a beautiful transformation and your artwork is exquisite. I always enjoy your styling and photography, yet another one of your artistic talents. xo

The way you showcase the ordinary and humble finds, using them to add such beauty to your home, is always an inspiration. You have created such a peaceful quiet spirit, a breath of fresh air that extends to the reader. And your paintings, Dore, are absolutely breathtaking!
