    With every bit of care, Greg Hildebrandt brings to you #105 in the American Beauties Pin Up Series, Candy and Cream. This next American Beauty struts down the streets and into the heart not only of the man in the painting but to all fans of polka dot dresses and gorgeous confident and sexy gals! One of the many attractive qualities to the women that Hildebrandt paints, draws, and sketches is their confidence.

    Their confidence in their outfit. The confidence they carry in a wink, a smile, or a flirtatious grin. How each of the women he paints has a story to tell. Where is she walking to? from? Is she walking to impress the construction worker? Or is she simply walking down the street confident and strong just because that is the kind of woman she is? Hildebrandt puts so much time care and thought into each piece, from the beginning sketch stages, to laying the paint out on the canvas with the very first brush strokes all the way to the end where he works on tightening edges and adding the final highlights. All of the careful work he does makes the difference in each piece he paints. Hildebrandt creates a world, a fantasy, and a dream.

    It would indeed have been much simpler to work with a local auction house, and we had local options. But we never once regretted going with Heritage.
