This is a study from a larger canvas (Eat at Jo's). It was an experiment taking a bright daylight image into night. The image itself is from my Austin, Texas series of images along South Congress. This is Jo's where tacos are a small part of the menu. They're big on sprouts there and I love sprouts. Sprouts are pretty good on tacos.
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.
