"I photographed the reference photos for these wrens on one of my walks," says artist Melissa Gannon. "Bewick's wrens are very hard to photograph since they usually hang out in the middle of the bush!" She deftly combines the wrens with photos from another walk along a creek with reflections that made intricate patterns. "In this piece, I wanted to show the layers of sticks and leaves and water and a taste of the wildlife which live there."

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.
