Paintings from the Series
by Melanie Hickerson
Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out— from “Mending Wall” by Robert Frost

I paint a self-portrait every year. “Painting is my self-indulgent pursuit, my curiosity reaching. It has led me around the world. I cannot not-paint. I am doomed and lucky as royalty are doomed and lucky. So far, I have survived this continuing single-minded indulgence. I’m trying to express with paint and shapes something about being human — not all of it, but something of it that is recognizable. My goal is to make a gift to share, to help and say, ‘You are not alone.’”
