Nikki and I have been wanting to do a wet shoot for a while but the opportunity never really presented itself. After ruining the original painting, “Raquel,” trying to fix the face, I decided to go ahead and do that shoot we’d been talking about. We shot on 9/28/14 in Hot Springs, and Towner went along (can’t go to the lake without taking him!) His tendency to try and rescue Nikki every time she’d dunk in the lake to get the shirt wetter inspired the name of the piece.
