I am fascinated by the way in which color, light and composition create aesthetic experiences that can transform us. I endeavor to reveal the beauty of color and light that enchants viewers with aesthetic appeal. My intention is to create paintings that inspire and provide a sense of well being.
Melody Phaneuf is well known for her evocative still life, landscape and portrait paintings. Her colorful oil paintings merge observation from life with imagination and memory. Her impressionistic style reveals the beauty of color and light that transforms viewers with aesthetic appeal. Her still life paintings are inspired by mythology and symbolism, while coastal landscapes embody the soul of Cape Ann—many veiled in moonlight or wrapped in the moist atmosphere of winter.

She is fascinated by the way in which color, light and composition create aesthetic experiences that can transform us. Her intention is to create paintings that inspire and provide a sense of well being.
