Saved By Perspective

I was about to start over on this canvas, as it was not what I was in my head, but then the husband turned it.  It became a whole new painting, so I continued.

Artists Name Change

My Artist name has been revised from MJ Toews to MelanieJoy .  Why? you might ask.  There are a few reasons, mostly personal and one legal; to make it easier for myself and for my clientele. Since this is what my Mom still calls me, it will be easy to stay me, to keep painting with the same child-like abandonment, creating worlds that may or may not exist to the naked eye, but do indeed make us see the imagination we all still secretly hold in our souls. Thank you for all your support, it means the world to me.
