Back From Berlin

Yeah! Back from Berlin. I had a wonderful time laughing and taking in the sights with my friend Greta and her family. I walked and biked all over Berlin and went to museums, galleries, cafes,gardens and the Berlin philharmonic. It was very rejuvenating and I am ready to get back in the studio!
"Perdida" the mermaid is 8x16 original acrylic on canvas and was my gift to Greta.

Hello! I forgot to mention that I was going to Berlin, Germany to visit my dear friend Greta from April 15-25. I am here now, just went running along the Spree River in the center of Berlin. It is spring here, green and beautiful. I am looking forward to visiting many of the galleries and museums. I will report back soon! ~ Melissa

It's happy hour! I am painting again, and glad to be doing so. "Copper River Salmon 1" has both paint and tiffany green patina on hand hammered copper.
