I loved drawing this model. My preference up to this point had been for
more “Rubenesque” or voluptuous body types, and usually nude women
because that’s all we were exposed to during my college years. Any male
models would have been required to wear jock straps. Well, it was the 60’s
and I was enrolled in a ‘proper’ women’s college after all. When we did
have an ‘erotic art’ exhibition, it was held in the basement. Only senior
year art majors were allowed to view it. Very funny in retrospect.
So then this particular model is either from my days at Skowhegan, or at
one of the live drawing sessions I used to attend during my early years
after moving to Boston.
