Looking Down Pacifica

Looking Down Pacifica
E Melinda Morrison

I try to post paintings from Texas artists as much as possible. Today I am happy to introduce a new artist to these
pages: E. Melinda Morrison. Biography from her website:
. . . As a young woman, her B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Tyler took a backseat to the corporate world for many years: advertising exec; graphic designer and art director of her own company; corporate recruiter. Not surprisingly, she was recognized in national competitions for her print design and annual reports. But shortly after her move to Denver in 1994, the satisfied extrovert began to hear from the starving artist; she says she “felt like her soul was drying up”. An oil-painting class at the Art Students’ League of Denver rained water on that desert ground.
