One of Duane Bryers' incredible Hilda paintings done specifically for Bigelow & Brown's Hilda calendars. These were illustrated between 1957 and 1970 although Mr. Bryers continued to do original paintings for the calendars until the early 1980s. These were all primarilly rendered in watercolor employing the service of a number of "plus-size" models, but more often than not, he used only his imagination of "Hilda."
Ok, the person who pinned this before me said "Cute chubby girl on bike... love this one". Persons before me, I would just like to say, that is not a chubby girl. That is what we call a BOMBSHELL. Thank you. Come again.
