Today’s note is for Anthony and his adorable bundle of love, Quinn. And, as it turns out, I happened to finish this portrait on Quinn’s birthday–what serendipity!
Anthony’s quote really made me smile in it’s simplicity and it’s concrete connotations; “Let’s cut through the romantic bullshit and talk about what it really means to be in a relationship.” Anthony also happens to be a very dutiful father, and I requested to include Quinn because I felt it added a new dimension and emotional weight to the combination of image and quotation. I wanted to honor his masculinity and minimalism with a more basic mandala design, but also play with archetypes by alluding to the traditional image of Madonna and child.
Anthony Davenport, age 34, single
Honorable and committed.
