Weekend Image Post – Miniature Paintings
Melody Lamb followed me recently on twitter. Even if I want I generally don’t find time to visit every followers’s profile page. But Melody has listed me on twitter, and I generally enlist such tweeples in my gratitude list. So I visited her profile page, listed her, and at the same time learnt more about her. I have a soft corner for artists, writers, and creative people in general. After visiting her website and blog, I thought it would be appropriate to feature this talented miniature artist on my blog so that my readers could be introduced to her talent.
Melody lives in New England, United States along with her husband and two teenage kids. She is an artist, paints miniatures (ACEOs) of animals and fantasy, and illustrates children’s books (award winning illustrator).
Melody’s original art features miniature paintings and drawings that measure 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches (ACEOs) of whimsical animals, fantasy beings and woodland creatures. She works mainly in colored pencil, India ink and some white acrylic.
Here is a small biography of Melody written by someone so close, her sweet angel of a sister.
Brief Life-sketch of Melody Lea Lamb
Is Melody an artist who can also talk to animals, or a lover of fur and paws who also draws like a dream? Her fans can’t tell where one gift ends and another begins. All they know is that the combination has led to some pretty interesting life circumstances, from teaching art in a chicken coop to composing watercolors on horseback. And that may also be why Melody’s renderings of fairies and forest vistas seem as alive as her portraits of horses and cats.
All creatures great or small, real or imaginary, inspire Melody’s brush.
Having done her time at art school and the gallery scene, with a successful series of commissions along the way, Melody now paints miniature masterpieces and illustrates childrens books in the Berkshire Mountains while tending to a menagerie that includes a horse, a husband, three cats, two teenage kids, and a dog, all of whom have modeled for her at one point or another. Melody’s newest work is available throughout the internet as Art Cards, Editions and Originals (ACEO).

Moonlight Memoirs, a children’s book, written by Maggie Mei Lewis, and illustrated by Melody Lea Lamb, recently won a first place gold medal in the Spirituality category of the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
Melody’s miniature art of animals, fantasy beings (like fairies and mermaids), and woodland creatures make the perfect little gift. Her work features small affordable art and miniature paintings (ACEOs). She works mainly in a combination of colored pencil, India ink, watercolor, and acrylic.
Melody’s art ranges in price from under five dollars for prints and bookmarks, to over three hundred dollars for the original miniatures. This makes her art available to collectors of every type and with every budget.

The secret about miniature art is the intense sense of intimacy that is experienced when you hold a piece in your hand. When a piece of art is so small that it can rest in the palm of your hand, you are being gently invited to bring it a little closer to your eyes. You bow your head a bit and bring your hand nearer to your face. This is a very intimate pose. At this moment, you have let the piece of art enter into a vulnerable personal area. You would never hold anything dangerous this close to your face. This is the way you would hold a butterfly or a small kitten; very gently and close. Miniature art is a gift, a treasure, a secret and special friend. ~ by Carol Rosinski
I am publishing here two more of her charming miniature paintings, the “Spring Bunny 2010” is her most recent.
