Good Example 7 | Portrait of Joseph Renda Sr.
From contributing artist @j.renda_artist - “My father has been a Chicago Fire Fighter for 38 years. He has served on Squad 1, Tower 10 and Engine 5, climbing the ranks to Battalion Chief. He has put his life on the line to save complete strangers, jumped out his car off duty to assist those in need and after will humbly say “It’s just part of the job”. I remember growing up he always told me, “do something you love, and you will never work a day in your life”. These words impacted me greatly, for the passion and drive in him, I mimic in my artistic career. My father has lived an honorable life, and I strive to achieve the same.”
