Paint and Palette with Melanie Morris


Melanie continued to participate in workshops and classes, and today she teaches classes and has her own studio. Her favorite subjects are flowers and landscapes, and it was the love of landscapes that led her to swap her brush for a palette knife. “My husband Michael and I went to one of our favorite places, Big Sur, California. I took hundreds of photos, but when I started painting I couldn’t capture the wide open feeling of Big Sur.” Friend and artist Linda Ledet suggested she try the palette knife, and her brushes have seen little paint since.
