Working on this painting I began with the warmish colors of fall and then later the
addition of the blue and bluish white conjured a feeling of winter frost and ice. Thus, a wintry mix.

MELODY CLEARY - CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPES, WATERSCAPES AND ABSTRACT PAINTINGS
Delving into abstract I have learned to 'activate' the canvas, paper, or board which helps greatly
to just 'get going' and get past that blank surface. No preconceived notions....just being free. This, itself,
creates some wonderful design surprises when I zoom in to the piece at this exploratory stage.
MELODY CLEARY - CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE, ABSTRACT, AND NATURE INSPIRED
This composition was based on a small black and white intuitive study. The marks were random
but somehow a landscape image always comes out of me. I'm very excited about this new way
of creating paintings that are alive with my personal marks.

MELODY CLEARY - CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE, NATURE AND ABSTRACT PAINTINGS
I haven't posted since January! I've been working on this new 'journey' I've been on and am loving what I'm learning! Here is a 24 x 30 inch canvas which shows the lighter palettes I'm working with. And the mark making - so exciting! This piece now hangs in a collector's home. Lucky me!
