Melissa Mercer Brown lives on Scenic 30A along the emerald coast of South Walton County, Florida, where the breathtaking landscape and coastline provide a constant source of inspiration. According to Melissa, “The changes in the weather and the effect on the Gulf of Mexico and dunes are subjects that I long to paint. I am absorbed and amazed with the beauty and drama of the ocean. The play of light on the sea, distant horizons, stormy clouds, the coastal lakes, and dunes are my constant stimulation. I also am inspired by the magnificent oak trees, hammock vegetation, and wildflowers along the coastal lakes, bayous, and state parks. My style of painting is often using a lot of texture and translucent layering of washes to capture the changing sea and skies.”
