I’M DEERING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS!

Posted By on Thu, Dec 11, 2008 at 8:40 PM

I wanted something different yet memorable this year for my cards. So I commissioned the fabulous John Deering for an original piece that I and all my friends (many of whom you’ve met at the Presidential Debates and Conventions) could cherish for a lifetime.

 

John came up with a brilliant idea, I think!

 

“Why don’t I paint YOU in the style of Alberto Vargas!”

 

“Who?”

 

“The old Playboy pinup artist from the fifties!”

 

I’m too young to know the artist, but the minute John showed me some samples I was smitten!

 

It’s an artistic, warm and tasteful piece that captures a side of me few ever get to see. With characteristic touches of that droll Deering humor that makes him so beloved.

Thank you, John. I love it and I love you!

 

I hope this piece finds a home this holiday season in the hearts of all my friends, without whom I would be, you know, pretty much broke.
