Ready to Hang
Next to sliced bread and the internet, food trucks are some of the best things around. They're big in Texas and you always know you'll get great food when you go to one.
The last food truck I ate at had this wonderful selection of bottled pepper sauces. I knew I'd want to paint that sometime so I pulled out my trusty phone with the great camera and took a snapshot. This painting is what I saw.
Like all my paintings, it's gallery-wrapped and wired to hang. A frame is optional. When I frame my work, I get a black floater frame.
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.
