Ready to Hang
My daughter said "paint food trucks" so I'm painting a few. There are bunches of them in Houston and Austin. This one is in Austin. South Congress Ave. used to have a spot just for food trucks and this is one of them.
Keep Austin weird.
All my paintings are are wired and ready to hang. They are gallery-wrapped and the painting continues on the sides of the canvas. You can frame them or not. I like to frame them in solid black floater frames.
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.
