Geoff.. just had to add a bit more, as I look this over...what is striking to me atleast is the great textures you master, the soft wooliness of the blanket , its satin sheen of the border, the sheer fabrics, and the warmth of the old stove.. all brought together so expertly not to mention the great figure painting...the obvious subject...:):););)

Gotta love old pot bellies. . . er, stoves, that is. Pot bellied stoves. She seems to be appreciative enough. . .but I digress. . .

This guy had to have been influenced by the times he lived in. He's like the Norman Rockwell of nubile young nymphets. He really does tell a story, and his humor is wonderfully conveyed in his great set-ups. This stuff could go so trashy, but it's brilliant in its restraint yet comes right up to the line quivering.

You have to be learning so much doing these. And, I daresay, I look forward to seeing a new one when I enter the forums.

Thanks everyone for your kind words, glad you liked my texture in the blanket
gxhpainter, I spent a number of hours just experimenting with different grains and opacity to attempt to give it the effect of softness.
Thanks Geoff

Hi there Geoff, I love what you are doing with these great pinups, they are awesome, and we did have a few cold and rainy days but most the time it was very good, so good to be back, spent so much time looking in different areas to live when our house sells(if it ever does lol) we really like Simcoe area as we lived in Waterford a long time ago and Wilsonville and always liked it, so we will see when the time comes:D
