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.

Live Portrait Painting

I love painting live and large, painting for this event was both, fantastic fun for everyone. The majority of this portrait was painted on site, and then back to my studio for finishing refinement. Stay tuned for upcoming events and come say Hi!

Demonstration Paintings

I’ve recently started teaching again, photo-realism style black & white focusing mainly on reductive techniques, and it surprises me every time how addicting it can be pulling out highlight details all day.  After teaching a weekend marathon class it still wasn’t enough so I gave another artist friend of mine a full day of instruction and in doing so knocked out this small painting of Hedy Lamar.
