Paint and Palette with Melanie Morris


Her newest art venture is painting wedding bouquet portraits. Several years ago a woman bought one of Melanie’s floral paintings because it reminded her of her wedding bouquet. “That gave me this idea,” Melanie explains. “Most brides spend so much time choosing the perfect flowers for their bouquet, and then they are gone, so I decided to capture their beauty in a portrait.” Photos of the bride’s bouquet provide Melanie with her model, showing the type of flowers, arrangement, and colors.
