Greenlief, Melody. "Mormon and Moroni", 2020.


In this painting, the artist wanted to show the loving, nurturing relationship between father and son. She wanted to show them as a young father and son studying the scriptures together.

Melody Greenlief is best known for her expressive paintings in watercolor, although she also paints in acrylic and mixed media collage. As a child, she spent many summers on her grandparents' farm in Star Valley, Wyoming, where she spent many quiet hours observing the mood and texture of the landscape.She studied graphic design at Salt Lake Community College and the University of Utah.
