My favorite painting from the book, and one of my favorite paintings period.
The fun thing about this is I desperately needed a model for the book, I was about to start painting, and I drove down to Garlex Pizza in Pleasanton to pick up a pizza...and there was my heroine! Jamie had exactly the look I had imagined! (I came back later with sketches and my portfolio to prove legitimacy.)
We shot the photo reference the next day!
