From Melissa's Dream Within a Dream Collection
They say eyes are the window to the soul. The reason could be that we understand human expressions more than that of other sentient beings. Or maybe, we are narrow in our ability to perceive anything different from outside ourselves, we miss opportunity to find meaning. Either way, The Window asks the viewer to look closer. Do you see the bird looking back? Maybe reality is informed by what we want to see and believe?
Each mixed media painting is sealed and then coated 2X with UV protection varnish. They all come with hardware installed, so they are ready to hang and enjoy.
These particular paintings contain old fragments of artwork from when I was in art school (many moons ago). There is also piano player music sheets found throughout, you can read the words by starting at the bottom and moving up. I enjoy using old materials forgotten, as they can both create new and exciting works while maintaining a sense of environmentalism.
