Gallery of Reader's Art: Marie-Gael in OH

Send in a photo(s) and the details of how you've used art in your home. Instead of a contest, we thought we'd go the slightly less-competetive route by asking for submissions and sending a thank you gift (An AT T-shirt or Book) to the first 30 entries posted across the four AT city sites this month. We'd love to show off your art, so don't be shy - send us some photos! Details here.

Marie-Gael sent us some photos and a little background: "I just moved into a really beautiful Victorian in Columbus, OH. I can't paint the walls so art is one of the only ways I can bring color into my life. Thankfully, I'm an artist! Art is one of the easiest ways to make a high impact statement about who you are but still keep things tasteful.

Dining room - this is rather large because I have high ceilings. I like the contrast of modern and minimal with old. You can't see it but there is an old chandelier in the room (part of having a victorian). This piece was inspired by french impressionist pointillism with a bit of a twist. It's the sky in a sort of confetti vision. I find it very relaxing. I love the way it reflects off the cafe table. The blue and black pottery pieces reflect the colors in the painting and the chairs."

Bedroom - the light green paintings were done a few years ago after someone very close to me was killed. My paintings have served as a sort of diary. I get intense feelings & try to make something beautiful out of them. I love the jewel tones. The pillows are hand made from a sari, which, I believe is an art form in itself. My bedroom is filled with pieces from India.

(Thanks, Marie-Gael!)
