Figure Studies & Gesture Drawings

Figure Drawing with the family!
I love visiting my family, full of talented artists and excellent models. It still mystifies me how I was so lucky to be born into such a creative hot spring of a family where we all share the same passion, love and talent for art. It was my brother Skyler’s last request to spend his last few days with us together drawing each other, rotating modeling while the rest draw in a circle. He left to Indianapolis for two years for us, and I am so glad we got to spend a few hours in pure artistic bliss – time has not gone by so fast as when you are with the people you love so much doing what you love so much.
Here are a few of my favorites sketches from that session:

More to come! My sister and I are attending a figure drawing session at another artist’s local studio tomorrow, excited for another day 🙂

Lovevolution Art Show

Opening Reception – Happy Chinese New Year! – Saturday Feb 17th 6-9pm

What does love’s light energy and/or DNA code look like? If Leonardo Da Vinci explained “The Theory of Love” as the study of positive electrons electrically charged due to emersion in love, a particular light would emerge, possibly a form, what would be the sacred geometry symbolism of love?  Frank Chester has found an amazing answer to that question with his discovery of the 7 sided tetrahedron called the Chestahedron. What would be the fibonacci sequence or equivalent code for two hearts bound in eternity beyond our linear time & space?
“. . . love has much broader implications also.
As you come to discover the truth of your own self,
you come to the very source of love.”

Full Moon Series – 30 Moons in 30 days

The moon is my muse and a “star-lost” love of mine who I run to night after night. It seemed natural to sync up with the lunar calendar and paint a entire series of her and also appreciate each stage of the moon. I started this series on July 2nd with the first full moon and completed these along with the moon cycle ending on the blue moon July 31st.

There are so many different instances that inspired these different moon paintings through out the month. I will write more about these individual inspirations in the descriptions of the paintings. I have enjoyed becoming preset to the subtle changes and energy shifts inside of me and how the moon cycles effect me. Please email me directly at melodyowensart@gmail.com for any questions/ inquires on purchasing any of these moons.
