A bird perches on a hillside, ready to fly into the great wide open. "This painting is about hope and the possibilities of the future," explains Mel. The abstracted clouds were created by first applying layers of white, then coming in with the blue sky color to cover selected areas, leaving cloud shapes that shine through. The hill was rendered to look like an abstracted nest with grasses. A combination of palette knife and brushwork lend gentle energy and movement to the scene.
