Art Direction :: Summer Daze

Hi! I’m Melanie Biehle and I’m so excited to join the Coco+Kelley team. Welcome to the first installment of Art Direction. I’ll be introducing you to talented artists by using a single piece of their work as a jumping off point for each post. Where the art will take us? Sometimes it may be a home, others a moodboard, like this one.

Our first theme is Summer Daze, and I’m using the layered mixed media abstract work of Anne Sherwood Pundyk for inspiration.

I first learned about Anne’s work from a great source for interesting contemporary art, Artsy Forager. This painting on paper is titled Crest, and was created with oil, acrylic, and charcoal. I love the color palette – it feels energizing and relaxing at the same time. It screams summer to me. Let’s go on a visual vacation!
