Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Hef's Birthday Present.... re-post of Betty

This was a painting I did for Hugh Hefner's birthday some years ago. It was acrylic on canvas and I brought it to him at the mansion. He adored Bettie Page and I thought it would be fun to have a painting where she is painting Hef (circa the time she appeared in the issue of Playboy.

I'm the guy on the left in the Hawaiian shirt, Hef is in the center and my then agent is on the right.

I had him sign a piece of typing paper which I have framed next to a print of the work. If I had been a little sharper I would've asked him about doing full page cartoons like Vargas had done all those years...I had heard that the artist Olivia wanted FORTY THOUSAND DOLLARS per page to do that art and I would've done it for a lot less....a whole lot less.

Re: Bettie

Great, Woody, cool memory, great artwork and a fantastic photo.
The only thing missing is a Playboy bunny logo hidden in the painting...I always liked looking for those!
What year was this taken, if you don't mind me asking?

I can't remember the exact year per se, but it was in the mid nineties. The photo, by the way, was taken by a "Bunny"....they do odd jobs around the mansion if they want.

Re: Bettie

Had to look up Bettie Page. Quite a woman, wasn't she? No wonder you found her memorable, Woody

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Hef's Birthday Present.... re-post of 'BETTY'

I'm not sure I had posted this in WetCanvas and if I did on what subforum but here is this acrylic painting I did for Hugh Hefner's birthday back in the mid 1990's. It's Bettie Page, one of Hef's favorite models and she is painting Hef about the time that both she and he began to rise to public acclaim back in the early 1950's.

It's one of those concepts I came up with and thought it would make a cute painting.

I'm the guy in the Hawaiian shirt and my then manager, Geoff, is on the other side in a business suit.

It was great to hang out at the mansion for part of the afternoon and one of the funniest things was, Hefner (who was VERY short) ran upstairs and came down wearing slippers with lifts in them so that when the girl took the pictures, he would seem taller.

I'm reposting this in several of the internet art groups I belong to because Hugh Hefner passed away today after an amazing long life.

Very sad, but hey he lived a great and amazing life!
It's wonderful you got to meet him.

Yeah he was something else all right. And I was certainly glad to have met him. He was 91 when he died yesterday and that's pretty good to have lived that long and accomplished what he did. There was an area of class about PLAYBOY that his competitors never really managed to achieve no matter how hard they tried.
