One of our favorite artists Melissa Haslam revealed these new paintings at the opening of the group show “Call of the Wild” this last weekend at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight in San Francisco. Her paintings are always so full of feminine beauty, with a perfect balance of light and color.
I especially like the pink flowers she chose for a couple of her recent portraits. “The flowers are based on the pink mulla mulla. I found some photos of mulla mulla fields on flickr when I was researching my trip to WA and thought they looked pretty amazing,” she states on her blog.
