One piece sold so far at Sweet Lines, Fabulous Form - a figurative show.

This was drawn live at Bombshell Betty's Studio - model is Audacia Ray - I believe it was the last Dr. Sketchy's Barbary Coast session (SF) hosted by Thomas S. Roche and Ponygirl. Bombshell-Betty Field & Randy Johnson hosted DrSketchy's SF for awhile after that and had some great sessions!

Here's another piece from CCAC (1981-'85). I believe it was drawn in Carole Peel's portraiture class.


Pleasanton Parks and Rec had an ongoing figure workshop for years. This drawing is from the early to mid 90's.


Another from Pleasanton Parks and Rec figure workshop in the '90's.


Catherine D'Lish is a wonderful artist, performer, and beauty of burlesque. She personally provided photographic inspiration for this piece.
It was originally shown at a High School dance with a Moulin Rouge theme in 2003.


I hope to see you there!
