Yesterday I spent the day in one of my favorite towns, Asheville, North Carolina. My close friend Tiffany directed me to an incredible new shop in town called The Drygoods Shop. Inside, I saw the work of some very talented artists, including these sweet paintings by local resident, Melissa Moss.
These prints or acrylic on wood pieces have a pretty and pleasing aesthetic. Melissa, "I use color as my primary artistic element. I've studied the meanings and associations of colors and their subtle shades and tones and use this knowledge to convey the mood of each painting."
The names of each painting quickly made me smile, like this lower right piece which Melissa titled, "I miss you when you're asleep."
Melissa begins each painting by choosing an emotion to convey. All of her images are nature inspired and have a charming, bewitching vibe...
