This was my first painting that I sold. I painted it while at CSUF, like most of my older pieces. I really miss having those 6 hour studio classes everyday. I was cranking out paintings like crazy. The model was based from a pose in Maxim Magazine, some hotty that stood out to me. The original was sold to an awesome guy who put it up at his store in the Arty area of Long Beach. I don’t think they are in business any more. But when I sell a piece I make sure to get a high res picture of it, so I can reproduce it whenever. I’d still like to show it when I have another Gallery, it’s one of my favorites.
