Ready to Hang
This is an original acrylic painting on canvas done with Academy acrylic paints on a pine framed, stretched canvas. I have painted the sides of this piece so it can be hung with or without a frame. It is initialed on the front with the title, year of completion, and my signature on the back. I also include a certificate of authenticity with all of my original paintings.
Melissa Mickelson is most known for her acrylic paintings of North American freshwater fish. Playing with underwater topography and light, Melissa’s paintings capture a usually unseen world. An avid fisherman, she bases her subjects off of photographs she’s taken at various lakes across the state of Minnesota, focusing on the detail and movement of the fish. She conveys a sense that the fish can be grabbed right out of the painting, a moment frozen in time, usually including one of her favorite lures and a fish about to strike.
