I was delighted to come across the art of Melissa Launay.
She uses bold colors, often in shades of purple or blue -my favorites.
Each painting evokes a sense of peace and rest.
I'm drawn in.
I want to sip a cup of tea in her sunroom,
laze in a hammock beside her palm-fringed lagoon,
choose some ripe vegetables from her garden,
and lean on her gate to watch the sheep.
