“When I begin a painting of a particular animal (or landscape) I find myself becoming slowly and completely enamored with God’s perfect creation. With each stroke I am more in awe of this spirit and throw myself into capturing what inspires me. It’s a process filled with heart and my hope is that I can convey at least some of this feeling.” ~ Melody Lea Lamb
