In an unusual closing of the circle, I have now done a 'Saturday Evening Post' cover. I was honored, and more than a bit cognizant of the ghosts that came on the heels of the commission. Yipes! Luckily, I had two very good models, who soldiered on through major wardrobe malfunctions (no, not THAT malfunction!) and curious onlookers wandering by the setup.

In a display of the generational divide, I asked the magazine clerk if she stocked the Post, and she really had to think what that might be. Took her a while. And of course, they were out of it. The Post on your ipad? Maybe some day....

Way to go, Chuck! The thought of being on the cover of the same publication as Rockwell and Leyendecker(and many more) is just mind blowing. *smile*
