Galveston Beach with a red umbrella. My eye always goes towards a red umbrella so if I see it, I will paint it. Soothes my soul.

Getting to Know Melinda

Melinda’s bright acrylic paintings feel like snapshots of everyday life. Her cheery compositions capture glimpses of what a carefree passerby may notice on a sunny weekend afternoon. Main street signage, casual cafes, and outdoor leisure areas leave the viewer nostalgic for summer vacations passed. Melinda’s subject matter comes from her personal snapshots. “I take thousands of photos everywhere I go,” she says. Then, back in her home studio, she uses her pictures as reference material, but takes creative license with colors and composition. Her bold yet crisp use of color, shadow, and shape speaks to her professional background in graphic design, and results in compelling examples of contemporary realism.
