Aside from loving the ladies (like any self-respecting freebooter), Elvgren seems to have had a special place in his heart for the sea. Many of his pinups depict gorgeous gals in nautical situations. Allow me to offer just a few.
Did I mention his work was delightful? If you want to know more about the talented Mr. Elvgren, would like to own copies of some of his work, or just want to see cowgirls, lady traffic cops and a whole lot of black and pink lingerie, click over to the wonderful Elvgren Pinup website. You can't go wrong.
Finally, on another note all together and if you haven't yet, please consider donating as little or as much as you can to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana. The little guy in our last painting (and his family and friends) need a lot more help than Gil Elvgren's model can supply. Thank you Brethren; Happy Friday!
