Alan Melson – “Butterfly Bush”

“Painting for me is about finding that scene or still life or person that moves me to paint.  The passion of the subject matter whatever it is.  The contrast of light and dark.  It’s all about the light for me really.  Nature gives me so many beautiful scenes to try and capture and I hope the viewer of the painting can experience the same joy.  It’s a journey that takes me to constant challenges and different techniques.  Often I found my greatest freedom to explore when I paint over old canvases realizing I have nothing else to lose so why not go for it or do something different.”
