I saw. I liked. I painted. That about sums it up. That's how and why I paint. Confession: I've never actually been to this place that I believe is in Arizona. Someone I know was there and took a photo. The photo was really similar to something I've had in my mind for a long time. So I cropped it and tweaked it and put my own spin on it and here you have it. I've seen those bare mountains with the dots of green every time I've flown over the western U.S. I've always wondered how people manage to put a house there. Now I see.
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.
