Ready to Hang

This is an 8" x 10" acrylic painting on canvas. It's gallery-wrapped and wired for immediate hanging. You can add a frame or not. I like solid black floater frames.

Somebody left their bicycle chained to a street sign on the Galveston Seawall. He left his shoes too. I was staying in a condo directly across the street. I sat around on the balcony watching to see who showed up to retrieve the bike and shoes. A surfer, with board, collected it and rode off carrying a surfboard under one arm. I could never manage that.

Melinda Patrick began developing her art when she was a very young child. Her paintings are her vision of the places she loves, the colorful cityscapes and ordinary people that catch her eye. I was interested in art from an early age and was mentored by my Grandfather, an accomplished photographer and painter. Earning my Bachelor of Fine Art at the San Francisco Art Institute, I developed my art in oil. Many years spent as a graphic designer has changed my perspective and my recent medium of preference is acrylics. I use the fast drying time of acrylics to achieve crisp results. While I do work in other mediums, such as gouache and ink, it's acrylics on canvas that captures most of my creative spirit. She lives, works and paints in a pine forest near her native Houston.
