Melissa is my niece. Daughter of Kimberly, sister to RJ, mother to Hyden. Her name means ‘honey bee’. She is sassy, sweet and is as smart as can be. When Melissa was in her teens, it was Melissa who entertained all of the little ones at the family gatherings. The younger cousins flocked to her as she made them feel special. Now she is a lovely young mother herself with a bright future ahead. I used a modern palette of white, grey and black. Melissa, the world is yours. Go get it.
About this Collection
This is one of many small oil paintings in my series titled ‘Women’. They each represent family, friends and other women who bring inspiration in our daily lives. This project started out as a study for future color palettes for my larger paintings and emerged as little gems. At first when it came time to name each piece, I realized that each had their own personalities and reminded me of individuals that have touched my life in some way.
