Original painting from local artist Shelley Minchew containing a hidden truth in the form of lyrics from 30A Songwriters Festival favorite, Shawn Mullins.
Living near the ocean in Santa Rosa Beach has inspired Shelley to use her talents and interests to paint. Shades of blue and turquoise, pink sands, and golden sunsets are a part of her everyday life and she wants to share them through her art. She uses acrylics, plasters, gel, oil, paper and glaze to bring life to the beauty of the sky, ocean, sand and sunsets along 30A. Layers of paint and multiple processes create edgy, inspired creations.
Each of her paintings includes a "hidden truth"- a special message or quote intended for just the right person. Poets and scholars such as Emily Dickinson, Longfellow, Helen Keller and Solomon write these gathered truths.
48" x 24" acrylic, glaze, plaster and paper painting on wood with hidden truth---"love is an ocean, I'm anchored in you"--Shawn Mullins
