New Paintings Explore Pattern

Fishing, 8 x 10 Oil Painting by Melody Phaneuf

Abstract pattern is the fundamental structure of a painting. A pattern can be achieved in many ways: through color, shape, or light and shadow.

The new pictures I have been painting explore light as it caresses the landscape. Interlocking patterns of light and shadow dance across land, over waves, and between rocks.

The 8 by 10 inch paintings are little gems, perfect for small spaces or to group in larger ones. The little paintings are on panel, framed in a simple gold frame, and priced at $350.


Boston Artist, Melody Phaneuf is well known for her evocative still life, landscape, and portrait paintings. Her paintings are regularly on view at The Guild of Boston Artists, 162 Newbury Street; at Fenway Studios, Boston by appointment; and North Shore Art in Gloucester from May through October. Phaneuf ‘s paintings have been exhibited at The National Arts Club in New York City, Galerie Herouet in Paris, and with Art du Monde, in Japan.

Melody The Artist Home, founded with photographer and color specialist, Martha DiMeo, features Phaneuf’s original oil paintings on tumbled marble tile murals and beverage coasters, fine art prints, and handmade note cards.
