I was walking down a street on an unusually sunny Seattle afternoon, and this gorgeous Great Dane, who was tied to a small tree on the sidewalk. He was obviously waiting expectantly for his owner, and was totally devoted to the moment of their return, and when it came to naming this work, I wanted something that not only conveyed his size and demeanor, but also his devotion. I was blessed to have a camera at that gorgeous time of the day with "sweet light", a stunning subject and some great study photos to work from.
It's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.--Monet
