I was so excited to have painter, Melissa Capasso, whose visionary style is inspired by daydreaming, join me this week to continue my series on the Dream in Art.

Melissa makes charcoal drawings and oil and acrylic paintings that explore themes of mother and child, St. Lucia and Catholic icons, vision, blindness, and the vanitas...all in a wavy gestural style with vibrant color or primal black and white. She invents her subjects in her mind while walking and thinks of her work as a kind of visual novel. We talked about her work, her roots in Cape Cod, and the challenges / advantages of being an artist parent.
