Composition in a Oodie
About the artwork and sitter
Riley is a high school student who dreams of designing games. When he needs a break from coding and problem solving he plays out the compositions in his head on any instrument handy.
In this portrait we see Riley perched like a bird, playing the piano. On the rare cold day, he finds himself composing in his oodie.
