Painting Bridges~ The Drawbridge at Edam

Drawbridge at Edam, oil painting by Melody Phaneuf
~

Charming drawbridges dot North Holland’s landscape, perfect entries into enchanting villages built on water. I am visually attracted to bridges because they break up the picture plane in ways that one doesn’t ordinarily find in landscape motifs. As a story-telling motif, bridges offer many possibilities.

Bridges connect separated realms and can act as portals to special experiences. Continue reading~

Moved by the Spirit

Peaceful Harbor, oil painting by Melody Phaneuf

~

For as long as I can remember I have believed that my purpose is to make things. I recall long preschool afternoons with my mother, joyfully immersed in constructing dollhouses from cardboard boxes. I loved to “color,” and was always happy with crayons, paper, and imagination. Continue reading~

A Discriminating Vision

available in Open Edition Print, Fine Art Note Cards and Bookmarks
~

“When I move, all I’m taking is my painting.”

Sophie is five years old and has outgrown her bedroom. I was happy to hear through her family grapevine, that she has her aesthetic priorities in order. I must also admit that I’m a bit relieved that Outside The Box made Sophie’s discriminating cut for her new bedroom. Continue reading~

Colorful Consequences

Fragrant Delight, oil panting by Boston Artist, Melody Phaneuf
~

Why do we find certain combinations of color pleasing? Color satisfies other senses in addition to sight, like touch and taste. For example, sunny yellows and orange hues on a cold day may take our minds off the chill, and dark, warm browns might remind us of cocoa. Continue reading~

Minor Key Moods

Squalls, 30 x 25 oil painting by Melody Phaneuf

Snow has been a spirited topic of conversation since the recent storm. I overheard an interesting comment by someone who disliked days of sun and snow together, then watched her expression of delight as she described how peaceful and reminiscent snow storms make her feel–despite having to dig out in the aftermath.

In regard to mood, it’s true that lighting is the most significant visual force. Continue reading~

Violet Variations

Violet, 20 x 16 oil painting by Melody Phaneuf

~

It’s a useful exercise to limit an aspect of design to explore what can be done within given parameters. In Violet, color was limited to a single hue, resulting in countless variations of value and intensity. Nuances of color shimmer in ways that would be lost within a full palette. The subtle gradations draw us in and command a quiet observation. Continue reading~
