Ready to Hang
This is a 20" x 16" 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.
My daughter said "paint food trucks" so I'm painting food trucks. This one was in Austin, Texas along South Congress. Sadly, the food trucks were removed so that a building could be built. I don't know where they went. I haven't been back to Austin.
This is the Mighty Cone. Title is good enough for the painting as well as the truck. I'm not sure what they sell. I don't think it's ice cream.
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.
