About the Item

Young Dreams 18 x 18, egg tempera on gold leaf panel is by E. Melinda Morrison a who lives in Fort Worth Texas. This painting was done of a young African woman who was visiting the United States from Zimbabwe and is wearing her native dress of her African country. The young African woman posed many hours for her portrait in the artist studio. The painting is egg tempera on gold leaf. Young Dreams was selected as a finalist in the non-commissioned portrait category in the 2020 Members Only Portrait Society of America Show. The paintings is gallery wrapped so there is no need for a frame. Look for the free shipping code when you check out. What is Egg Tempera? Tempera is a handmade painting medium, which is very easy to prepare. It harnesses the natural emulsion of egg yolk, using it as a binder of liquid and dry pigments to create color layers. The great advantage of using a mixture of normally immiscible substances (water and fat), is that we can use tempera either as a lean or oily medium. This grants it an amazing versatility. E. Melinda Morrison 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; and later corporate and executive 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. Over the next five years, Melinda studied painting at the League under the guidance of master painters like, Quang Ho, Kim English, Kevin Weckbach, and Ron Hicks. As her passion and skill grew, so did her dream to paint full-time. She made the leap in 2003 and brought years of corporate skills into the new and intricate dance of a full-time professional art career. She hasn’t looked back. Since that decision, Melinda has participated in over 8 one woman shows in Santa Fe and national and regional shows in the Southwest and Southeast gaining recognition for her figurative paintings. Her work is collected among collectors across the US and internationally. Melinda has been featured in major articles in national and regional magazines and newspapers such as Southwest Art, American Art Collector, The South African Artist Magazine, the Santa Fean Magazine, and the Albuquerque Journal (where she received a three, full-page article on her work). She has been chosen several times as a finalist in the national Bold brush art contest and over 20 times as FAV 15%. As a sought out teacher, she offers professional studies courses as well as offering workshop instruction from other nationally known artists. She is a member of Oil Painters of America and the Portrait Society of America. She has won awards of excellence and honorable mention in OPA online and regional shows and recently Best People, Award of Excellence in NOAPS online showcase.
