Melody is a colleague and one half of the Creative Connectors team in Studio 6 here at the Pier, along with Stacey “Flygirrl” Wilson. I love this portrait of Melody even though on some level it looks nothing like her. On another level, all of her features are right there, they are just skewed a bit and a bit off center. I also love how brown, blue and white are so prominent in this painting. I remember us talking lots about law and Melody talking lots with her hands. I’m re-reading my Instagram post of this painting and remembering her telling me that she knew that Prince was a seriously good basketball player. Tidbits like that made this whole project worthwhile.
