As long as I can remember I dream of beautiful rooms with special views, preferably in Mediterranean countries. To open the shutters in the morning and be surprised by a sunlit landscape, in the distance the ever changing blues, greens, purples and pinks of the sea or a lake … Those rooms were not always reserved for me, but fortunately enough as an artist I can create the desired view myself.
Without realizing, I have been inspired by Pieter de Hooch (1629-1684) who is famous for his interiors with open doors and windows through which you can have a look outside.

In the theme issue Glorious Color of the American art magazine PoetsArtists  (June 2018), Lorena Kloosterboer (artist / writer) writes the following review on  Room with View / Summer in Stresa:

“Melchers’ quixotic painting, entitled Summer in Stresa, draws me because of its romantic atmosphere, superb attention to detail, and vibrant multichromatic palette. This piece elegantly captures a moment of blissful intimacy by linking an opulent private space with the world beyond—both equally enticing and inviting in their potential promises.” (see my profile for Kloosterboer’s full review).
