Large Original Painting By Melissa Ellis Zink

Large Original Painting By Melissa Ellis Zink

This is an undated, signed original acrylic painting by artist Melissa Ellis Zink. This painting was once gifted by Melissa to her brother-in-law for his office at Howell Mouldings in Kansas City. Melissa later divorced Mr. Howell in 1973 and remarried in 1975 to Nelson John Zink who encouraged her to focus on the arts.

Her dream of creating art was fulfilled at a much later time in her life with an abundance of support from Mr. Zink. I have reason to believe that this painting, along with the other painting I acquired from the Howell Mouldings Co., were created at an earlier stage in her life while still in her twenties, (possibly while she was studying art) long before she stepped into three-dimensional scenes of clay, mixed media, paint and bronze two decades later. In 1993 the Parks Gallery in Taos New Mexico exhibited Melissa’s work. Melissa passed at the age of 77 in 2009, read more here.
