Fine artist, free spirit, successful entrepreneur, psychic and medium, Melissa Harris shares her art and her life – a feast of creative exploration. As a “sensitive” childhood leads to young adult struggles, she expands portrait painting to open doorways into souls and sojourns in New York and Paris to learn to paint only what she loves.
Autobiographical in nature, in this book Melissa reveals her beliefs about the truths of some general traits of the artist and the common ingredients of an artist’s life. “For me, there is no other choice but to paint.”
Painting Outside the Lines is a visual feast, vibrant in color and emotion, sensuous and soulful. As we enter the enchanted world of the artist as seer and adventurer, Melissa’s expressive work captures the universal stories of our own human experiences. If these oils, watercolors and collages are her medicine, this healing spreads across the pages, inspiring us to express our inner world and ignite our visionary nature, a reminder that even erratic and ever-evolving lives can lead to graceful changes and that, truly, “Anything is possible!”
