Greg Hildebrandt pin-up artist
The American Beauties series began at the end of the 20th Century and still Greg Hildebrandt continues to create stunning paintings and stunning beauties
"When I sat down to choose what kind of women I wanted to portray in my series I knew that I had to have 'Good Girls' and the 'Not so Good Girls'"
"Here I am 4 years later with 35 paintings in this series and I still have a mountain of sketches on my drawing board," said Greg in 2004. "I have decided that if I lived five lifetimes I would not be able to paint all the images of beautiful women that I see in my mind. So I keep sketching and picking individual pieces to paint. I keep searching for the perfect model to fit my images. I keep buying vintage clothes and stuff to use in the paintings. And I keep hoping that I have another 30 or 40 years to paint."
