"Peacefully Turbulent" by Melanie Burns
“Peacefully Turbulent” by Melanie Burns

At 129 W Washington St., Blue Whole Gallery’s exhibition “Sound of Waves” features award-winning painters, Melanie Burns and Nancy Delgado.  Skies to waters, sea creatures to the sound of waves, and the unity of grandmother and her granddaughter, together the two artists present in the front window gallery. Born and raised in Ketchikan Alaska, a rainforest of mostly blues and grays, Melanie is drawn to color. When the clouds finally dissipate and SE Alaska is blessed with a sunrise or sunset, there is nothing more captivating and overwhelming to her. She loves the color, the way it blends into everything. When Melanie paints in her unique way with acrylics, she first introduces the colors to each other and gets them to talk, then the colors take over, blending as they will and what emerges is a representation of what she sees. Nancy Delgado has been a realist since she was old enough to hold a paintbrush, and has been creating art in one form or another all her life in various mediums. In the early 90’s, she took a watercolor class from Carol Janda and fell in love with the luminosity and immediacy of the medium while pushing color beyond the pale norm. For the past 11 years, Nancy has been a faux painter on the beautiful luxury yachts and picked up her brushes for the journey of focusing on painting artful and peaceful images of our world.
