A mirror of the vast sky glides brightly along a stretch of wetlands. The warmth of the setting sun soaks the land in mellow tones creating a wonderful glow of pinks and reds. Frequent visits to a certain marsh sparked the inspiration for artist Melissa Gannon. She painted a compelling contrast of vibrant colors with a neatly balanced composition highlighting the tangle of growth in the foreground and land in the distance. "Whenever I go, everything fades away while I observe the beauty around me. There's a peace and energy in nature that I could never find anywhere else," shares Melissa.

Melissa Gannon

Gladstone, Oregon

Melissa is passionate about color. She finds it to be the most significant form of inspiration to paint. Speaking on influences in her work, Melissa says, “Sometimes it’s an idea that I can’t get out of my head, or a color that I just MUST paint!” She particularly enjoys painting leaves, and the changing colors of Oregon foliage are visible in her work. In 2001, Melissa began teaching art classes, which has allowed her to view her own artwork in a new way. “The information that flows in a class is awesome,” she says. Melissa is constantly learning from the students in her classes, and is more conscious of what it means to be an artistic role model.
