Remarks
"I posted a work-in-progress of this some weeks ago and now this portrait is finished, and many, many thanks are due to Johnny who manfully stood hour after long hour in a dancer’s pose so I could depict him. It’s wonderful to meet someone who is so passionate about his dance life and his heritage, and since he is interested in traditional dances of various parts of Mexico, there will be more of this beautiful model in other costumes. Johnny is half Mexican-American and half African-American, and has a beautiful baby face despite just turning 25." June 13, 2020
