A sexy witch beats an old fat witch with a wart on her nose any day of the week.
Didn’t get a single witch this Halloween… They must have fallen out of fashion!
awesome and very much in time. boo! 😀
oh and I’d like to say: the model had the hardest job.
sitting on a bar stool like that looking careless is an arduous task indeed.
I had a few pro photoshoots for my business portraits, nothing THAT fancy, but if you work with fashion photographers, they let you sit in a pose that’s stunningly elegant for the beholder yet actually model yoga… for advanced students!
My sister is a painter and she used to try to get me to sit still so she could draw me and I would always take off running in the opposite direction.
Model yoga I cannot even begin to comprehend!
Witty, wily and winsome 😉 .
Heaven forefend! That bodice is a miracle of the scaffolders’ art!
The Perfumed Dandy
I can’t help but wondering what happens to your lungs and stomach when toting around that kind of scaffolding…
Eye-popping Halloween Candy 😉
My guess is that it’s from the early nineteen-fifties?
So glad that the poster version shows black pumps! lol
Much better than white high heeled sandals!
Why is the broom in the painting supported on wires?
It was calendar art for a company named Brown & Bigelow, they specialized in pin-up art and were based in Chicago (I think). Instead of depicting a “witch” it represented a kittenish model dressed up (or barely dressed) for Halloween. The painting is called Riding High and the model is Marilyn Hanold (I misidentified her as Dusty Anderson!)
Love that old pin-up art! — YUR
