Those of you who know me, know I married above my station.
My wife is quite dope, and I’m just hanging around, burdening her with children to prevent her flight.
Where’s she going, you ask?
Well she’s one of the illest artist’s I’ve ever met.
She paints and sketches and basically puts her thing down.
She just completed a piece for Nneka, who stayed with us briefly when she visited the states late last year.
Chanel was so struck and inspired by Nneka when she met her, that she created this piece.
For those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to meet Nneka, she is one of the sweetest most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet.
When she stayed with us, we went to a Nigerian grocery to buy ingredients because Nneka wanted to cook us authentic egusi soup and farina. (It was delicious!)
Did I say the girl was sweet?
And if you don’t know wifey, know that she’s not painting just ‘ole anybody.
The girl’s got standards, ya dig?
So it was with eager anticipation I waited to see what she was gonna make.
This was where the piece started.
And this is how it ended.
I’ve become so attached to this piece, that I’m reluctant to let Nneka have it.
But I’ve got the artist, so I guess I can let this one go.
You can check out some of Chanel’s work at her site.
I just wanted to share my wife’s dopeness with the world, lest I be accused of being selfish.
Psssst. Feel free to hit me up if you want something commissioned.
