New 8 x 8 inch highly textured abstract acrylic painting available. Great for small spaces and with a thick gallery wrapped canvas, there is no need for a frame.
"Abstracted scapes, objects, figures crafted through faded memories, hauntings, and the subconscious. Fantastical daydreams, disconnected desires, nostalgia that can never actually exist in the real. Most of what I paint is in the moment a framed image of where I want to be standing, looking on, looking in. Even if the image is a distant memory, it is still unattainable. While my works focus in the desire, beauty, serenity, and longing that exists in dreams, nostalgia, and desire, there is a bit of despair and sadness hidden in the layers of each painting. I guess a bit of the human." - Melissa Minniefee
Since it was Thanksgiving yesterday, I just wanted to say how blessed I feel right now in my artistic life. Only a year and a half ago I decided to paint full time. Since then I have sold numerous paintings, a collector resold my work for three times the amount, and tonight I have my second gallery art show. All of these things keep me going because it is part of a larger knowledge that people are connecting to my work. That connection and the financial ability it gives me to keep creating is more than I could ask for at this time. Thankful for you all and for visiting my site. I hope that you find something that speaks to you. Much love from the west coast.
If you are a San Diego local, come by the C Note show at Ashton Gallery/ Art on 30th tonight from 6pm - 8pm. The walls will be covered with beautiful art and all the studios upstairs will be open for perusing too.
