This month our Featured Artist is Amelia (Mellie) Myer, Oil/Acrylics.

When I cleaned out my desk on my last day of work before retiring, I found broken bits of pastel brushes that I’d forgotten to clean, sketchbooks and drawings – evidence of a lifetime interest in drawing and painting.  

In the past several years I have devoted much of my time to art classes and painting, both as a skill and a tool for personal and spiritual development. I have found that the presence and deep attention required to paint is a form of meditation that sharpens my awareness and perception of both the natural world and my place in it.

I’ve been most interested in landscapes in oils and have recently been painting large abstracts in acrylic.

In the Salon will be featuring “GD, Watercolor and Dana Roberson, Clay” Gary and Dana live in the East Mountains of New Mexico and both are Geologists. Gary says that living in the West and Southwest, his landscapes are a dominant theme using the greens, browns, and blues of New Mexico. He also is influenced with the beautiful gold and blue sunsets and geologic features. As a geologist and scientist, his goal is to show the artistic community his vision of what landscape and abstract painting illustrates.

Dana is primarily working in clay, as she would rather feel her art being created. She lives in The East Mountains, New Mexico and loves to work with the colors and shapes of the high desert, plants, and mountains. As a geologist and scientist, her goal is to show the artistic community her vision of how clay can emulate landscapes and floral aspects of nature.
