***A word about 'gifs'. All the pictures on this site, with the exception of the top border photos, are compressed 'gifs'. In order to fit hundreds of pictures on this website, and still allow the viewer to download the site in a reasonable amount of time, all these pictures have been 'flattened' from jpgs to gifs. 

Jpgs are files that have the full complement of colors, light and shadow, as you can see in the top 7 border pictures. Gifs have been drastically reduced in file size to expedite downloading the website. 

So, add your own depth of imagination to these pictures, and enjoy the tour. Or better yet, contact Melissa to buy one and put it somewhere where you'll enjoy looking at it every day! 

All pictures are available for sale in full jpg format--and in the size and format of your choice--from Melissa at

   And if you'd like to have one of these photographs interpreted in an oil or pastel painting for that special spot in your home or office, just contact Melissa at     All photographic images can be painted, in any size you'd like.
