Not too long ago, I did a daily painting of my daughter posed with her guitar. Well, that painting landed her a modeling job! My friend Ron Spears teaches a painting class and hired her to model for a couple of classes. This painting is of her being painted by that class. Most of the people painting her hadn't painted much figurative work, but they dove right in and painted with boldness and vigor. They all seem very dedicated to their painting, which leads me to introduce this piece as my first in a series on "dedication". Enjoy!
