A delightful late 1940s original pastel by the father of American Pin up Rolf Armstrong done for the Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company. A lovely cowgirl western themed portrayal of Jewel Flowers titled "Here We Go." Jewel Flowers was Armstrong's favorite model and closest personal friend. She passed away last year and is fondly remembered and sorely missed by the pin up and illustration art community. Her zesty, sexy spirit, and the kinship between the artist and model are clearly visible in this wonderful pastel. The work is in fine condition and nicely framed and properly lined and ready to hang. Included is a vintage signed photo of the finished pastel with Rolf and Jewel posed with the newly completed pastel, signed by Armstrong.
