animal spirit

Mel has worked with many animals, wild, tame, past and present and has captured the magic of their souls through the close up detail of her paintings, particularly through the eyes. Mel works with gouache paint, which allows for the fine detail of her paintings.

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.
