Ready to Hang
I saw. I liked. I painted. That about sums it up. That's how and why I paint.
East of the Mississippi, the Gulf of Mexico is really this turquoise. The Mississippi mud goes directly west to the Texas and Louisiana shores. This is one of the small Florida Keys. One key with one large house and small parking lot on it. I wouldn't mind living there except during hurricane season.
The painting is gallery-wrapped and ready to hang without a frame unless you just want one. It looks great in a 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.
