Ready to Hang
An Austin restaurant on South Congress named Snack Bar. I learned it used to be a Chinese restaurant. I was focused on the cactus, the stone, and the huge variety of green hues in the scene because all those things say Austin to me.
The canvas is gallery-wrapped and wired on the back for immediate hanging. Put it in a frame if you care to but it's not necessary.
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.
