"Mountain High is created with layers of acrylic paint, rice papers, ink, and texture mediums. I love the mountains and love playing with different textures and colors to showcase nature. Collage adds interest to make you want to look at the piece over and over again. Each painting I create has a story. In 'Mountain High' mother nature embodies a circular path, never ending and always beautiful. 'Mountain High' is framed in a walnut floater frame, wired and ready to hang on your wall."
"Fields of Color" is a vibrant landscape utilizing cold wax and oil paint. The foreground consists of an expanse of open land with varied warm earthy tones. Subtle hints of vegetation with flecks of green and blue add to the complexity of the terrain. These plants create texture and depth on the canvas. The background showcases a mountain range that is silhouetted against a captivating sky. The sky itself is a stunning display of colors with shades of pink, red, orange, and purple blending into each other to form an awe-inspiring display. Melanie Ferguson employs loose and expressive brushwork throughout the painting that creates a sense of movement and raw natural beauty, and the colors are indicative of a profound observation of the natural light and its interaction with the landscape. Overall, the painting exudes a serene atmosphere and captures the transient beauty of a moment.
