This post is a little overdue but worth the wait I’m sure. Back in September I posted about Daniel Maidman’s work-in-progress from our private modeling sessions. The painting is now finished and I’m so delighted to post it here. When I see myself as the subject of an imaginative, intelligent, vibrant and striking artwork such as this, I am reminded of how lucky I am to be an artist’s model. Being hired and paid to do this, and work with amazing people like Daniel, is a uniquely gratifying and groovy existence. It never, ever, ever gets old. How can it when there is always another artistic vision and interpretation yearning to be created?
