What was it that made the classic Pinups so darn sexy?
It amazes me that after 50+ years classic pinup paintings remain the ultimate in beauty to men and WOMAN across the world. So I ask myself, what is it that makes them stand the test of time?
HERE IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH
Purpose- Pinups were not just a pretty face, they were doing something other than laying in bed waiting on a man. Whether it be shooting a gun, gardening, housework or checking the mail, she had a purpose other than sex. They were not objects, they were sexy being themselves doing day to day things and looking good doing it.
Smiles- Often caught looking clumsy making a mess, she still always seemed happy to see you, regardless of the situation. There was none of the over-sexed animal waiting to pounce look you see today, she was just a happy gal!
Clothes- Sure, sex sells but who wants to be sold much less while naked... NOT ME! Pinups not only had on killer outfits, but them showing a little skin meant an upper thigh or bathing suit, not a full on frontal shot. EFFORTLESS
Innocent- This to me is what sets classic pinups apart from the woman portrayed today. Pinups were innocent, nothing was contrived or manipulative, it was all innocent and cute. (cheesecake) She was sweet, pretty, and meant no harm to anybody - including other woman. She was no bitch!
Now that is SEXY....Call me crazy....

We have recently been on a velvet painting kick! They are so tacky, over the top and off the wall.
Painted on black velvet pulled around frame for canvas, the paintings range in sizes and tacky subjects....Elvis, Jesus, nude women, circus clowns, and unicorns too name a few. The list goes on and on.... many paintings came from Mexico during the 70s, but they were also mass produced in the United States.
These paintings are great to collect, the stranger the better.
