Juried Artist BPAF 2017 and 2019
Colorado resident Melissa Arthur paints along her favorite hiking trails and is attracted to the challenge of attempting to capture a moment of beauty in ever-changing outdoor elements. She strives to simplify the landscape into one theme that conveys the mood of a scene. Patterns in nature and influences of light are of interest to the artist when selecting a scene to paint. She trained in contemporary outdoor painting from Southern California plein air instructors while living in San Diego. Melissa Arthur participates in local, regional, and national group shows including gallery shows, plein air festivals, and juried exhibitions associated with various art memberships.
