Mermaid Original Painting
"Hi, I'm Cris Melo.Self-taught. I just paint and let the viewers continue the story. Often, people tell me a narrative while looking at my work. The expressions on the faces, colors - it helps to create a fantasy in their minds. I like that a lot. Naive, Primitive, Contemporary Folk, Outsider, Cartoonish - have been used to define my style.I tend to paint small but I'd love to do more large canvases. I always say this but rarely follow up. They keep coming out small. I paint in acrylics and watercolors, for the most part; I also use crayons, color pencils, gel pens, etc.I also create one-of-a-kind dolls, ornaments and other items from fabric, all or partly-handmade. I love beads, glitter, shiny things and embroidery."
