Melody Lane, Baker City, Oregon Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement American folk artist Melody Lane.
BIO: I'm sure there are a million things I could write about to tell you about me. I wouldn't know where to start really. I mostly paint to keep my mind occupied and ever since I started selling my paintings it has become a mission to continue for as long there are people out there collecting my art around the world. It's a sort of freedom from reality when your painting and at the same time you're creating a new reality from liquid colors... even if that makes no sense to anyone else out there, it's just the way I see it. If I had to give you a rough idea, I'd say that I've painted and sold somewhere around 3,000 paintings within this decade. I only use acrylic paint and have never painted with any other mediums. When I first knew I loved art I was in high school and my hobby was pencil drawings; none of which I ever sold but gave away to friends and family. Then, inspired by other artists on eBay, I took up painting mostly for fun then started up some eBay auctions. My art took off right from the start and I've been painting and selling my original pieces for over 5 years now. Thank you to everyone who buys and collects my art!
