The ZAAP Gallery is proud to present Melissa Maxwell as the featured artist for April 2017. Melissa's passion is to capture the moment in time when light passes through the flower petals, making them glow. She hopes to inspire others to see the subtle beauty in nature that often goes unnoticed. Her artistic process begins with growing her own flowers and tending to them year after year. Peonies, dahlias, and irises are some of her favorites, and often the subject of her paintings. She waits for the day when the clouds clear away and sunlight illuminates the fresh blossoms so she can capture the moment on camera. Using her photographs, she sketches a composition before beginning a painting in watercolor or oil. Melissa's signature style is to layer transparent colors over each other to build luminosity. Come and see her beautiful paintings on First Friday, April 7, and throughout April.
