A well rendered humorous gouache calendar painting for the Brown & Bigelow Calendar by prolific and well listed staff artist Bill Layne. This was used in their 1957 calendar line and is a precise depiction of what what Layne does best, a strange, hillbilly pin up scene.

Bill Layne was best known for his humorous "hillbilly" renderings which blended in shapely pin up girls and elves. During the later years of Brown & Bigelow's long run, Layne was one of their star illustrators.
