I saw. I liked. I painted. That about sums it up. That's how and why I paint.

I love pelicans. I get the feeling they're looking straight through me when I see them. The best place to commune with them is at Seawolf Park in Galveston. A lot of my pelicans are those birds. These are from Florida. I photographed a large group of about 12 of them. Then I edited them out one by one and then there were three left.

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.
