Piece description from the artist
I imagine Joy to be very colorful and bubbly. One experiences all things good when there is joy. It brings healing and washes away sorrow. It brings life into the deepest parts of the soul. The Butterfly down in the right hand corner "appeared" clinging to a bubble and I couldn't help but smile.
Melissa Carter has always been a creative.
Her family signed her up for some watercolor classes and she was hooked. Her art has evolved since then to include bright colors and textures using other mediums. She recently discovered alcohol inks and has been playing with them. Melissa is always exploring as she paints to create movement with her medium. She is also the mother to 15 kids, 14 who have been adopted internationally. She feels her paintings are very spiritual in nature and hopes that they speak of the hope that is available to those who see them.
