The First Lady

(1973)

One of their regular clients was Paul Raymond publications and the magazine 'Men Only'. The result is the 'First Lady' which was my first attempt to paint a woman and my first 'Amazon'. It quickly became one of my favourite paintings and subject matter. Now thirty five years later, they are everywhere...
