During Life Drawing class, Marlene Steele sat in with us. She is a local artist and teacher, well-known and respected. She shared this limerick (I may be paraphrasing since my memory is not always exactly right):

There once was an artist named Judy
who was famous for painting the nudie.
She painted the breast
and all the rest,
but her favorite was the patootie!

That sure sounds like Marlene!!!

Deb, it was the first time I've met her - she's very tall!! And she talked to us about her need for a warm-up before getting into a painting/drawing. She had a great sensuous line to her work, whether it was in charcoal or pastel.

Marlene Steele is an amazing artist AND she is originally from the Bluegrass State like you Rhonda!
I've modeled for many of Marlene's paintings and drawings. Two of them are on my website figure modeling page. Click my name to view them.

Hi, Brian! Glad you stopped by and commented. Marlene is a fine artist - wish I could take lessons from her through the Art Academy but she only seems to teach classes in the evenings at the Jackson Street location. I saw one she did from her sketch pad - it was a great sketch! (See you on the 12th!!)
