Melvin has always had an interest in art. He received a BA in Fine Art
from the Atlanta College of Art. He taught recreational art classes and owned
and operated a framing business in Texas before returning to Alabama to work in
the newspaper industry. Dan is determined to capture the positive aspects of
times past when life was simpler and slower than what he sees in the modern
Dan’s paintings are created to present a romantic era gone by. He
paints from information he gleams from historical documents. He visually
empties the space and then fills it in with his version of residence of the
past. Dan punches up his romantic, somber pallet with the careful use of orange
tones. He continually experiments with new themes such as coastal living, local
culture, and country scenes that have been barely touched by time.
