Introducing: Hilda

For the last few years, I have become quite fond of 1940-1950's pin up girls, I think they are so cute and fun and the scenarios they have been painted in are sometimes quite amusing. The last few years I have always bought myself a new pin up calendar for my studio that is filled with the drawings of Elvgren, probably one of the most famous pin up artists. But, I've come across an entirely new pin up girl and I'm proud to say you will be seeing more of her around this blog..she cracks me up! She wasn't your typical pin up girl but she became increasingly popular in the 50's and 60's for her plump figure and her all around happy zest for life! One of my favorite, farm related images now holds a permanent place on my side bar, which you can view to your right if you scroll down a little. Its okay, I'll wait.......   --->

Isn't she cute? I've been enthralled by her drawings lately..I just love them! Anyways, I thought I'd introduce you to her {incase you didn't know who she was, maybe you did?!}. Hope you enjoy seeing your hilarious depictions around here from time to time!! Have a great day everyone!!

    1. I am SO happy you love this Dawn, this is exactly the reaction I was hoping for!! As for chasing the cow..gosh I'd like to think I would do that but I doubt it!!
      The cabin I grew up at in the summer was always buzzing with squirrels so I have come to love them, they are just so dang cute!!
