Artist's Description

This is a print version of an original pastel I did that was inspired by the gorgeous Vogue model Penelope Tree from her work in the 1960s. She could drape her thin frame over any piece of furniture and look absolutely elegant. I preserved the original pastel on film, then scanned the negative, vignetted it a bit more in Photoshop and have created a portrait that is quite striking and will work beautifully in heavy, ornate, Baroque frames and oval mattes. My technique in the original pastel work was not the usual coarse pastel texturing. I did a lot of blending with my fingers to create a very smooth complexion and well-behaved hair. Smaller details such as lips and eyelashes were created with conte crayons. The print displays these details well and I feel it is an excellent reproduction that captures the mood of my original piece.

About Evie Cook

Evie Cook

Evie Cook is of a certain age and has some dear friends of the same age who she's hung out with over the years. Out with the girls enjoying southern California food, wine, margaritas and the like, the conversation was about grandkids, travels, retirement… but Evie was not in the same situation. She had no children or grandkids, she had to work to make a living having spent her life savings on her dad until he passed at 91, and never made it out of the country except for Mexico and Canada before passports mattered. While spending time with her friends her own personal experiences drifted up to the surface in her mind, but after mentioning some of them now and then she saw that these things did not meet with much...
