Melanie Burns

Through the harmonious blending of colors, I transform plain white canvas into impressionistic  creations by pouring and blending layers of acrylic paint and/or resin, sometimes combining the two. I introduce the colors to each other, getting them to talk, and what emerges is a representation of what I see and feel.

Acrylic pouring and painting with resin has delightful challenges with unpredictable results.  As the paints tend to dry quickly, I manipulate the colors, incorporating various mediums and babysitting each piece through completion. I influence the intended composition by pulling and pushing various colors as they merge and blend, sink and rise until they no longer listen to me but take on a life of their own.

Having lived most of my life in Alaska, near and on the water, the natural beauty of vast and amazing landscapes never fails to amaze me – the intense storms or the overwhelming calmness. For me, art is a spiritual path, a transformational process, a meditation, a symphony to be created. My hope is to convey what I see and feel through my art so that it touches your soul the way it does mine.
