FFFFOUND! Daily Find #5: Melissa Haslam

A gorgeous Daily Find today from Melbourne-based visual artist and painter Melissa Haslam:

"With an emphasis on narrative theme and a romanticized, escapist view of the world, Melissa's paintings are populated by beautiful females in fairytale-like scenarios. Influences include botanical drawings, the pre-raphaelites, japanese illustration and contemporary fashion photography."

Melissa's beautiful artworks have been exhibited in Melbourne, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and, more recently, at the Spring London Affordable Art Show. She also runs a blog, Cherry Fields, and a Facebook fan page here.

Here are two COLOURlovers palettes based on the above paintings by Melissa, "Desert Field" and "Laundry Service"...
