I was planning on painting today, but realized I was out of gesso...so rummaging through the closet, looking for something creative to do, I found these boring glass coasters that you insert pictures into...they were some gift from a distant aunt or something and have been collecting dust for ages...so I thought pinup girl coasters would make a fine addition to my coffee table.

sorry for the graininess of the pic...glass is so hard to photograph without a flash...



If you love pinup art and are not familiar with Alberto Vargas I highly recommend checking out his work. Of course, being that these are copies of his work, these coasters are completely intended for my own whiskey drinking use.
