Bathing Beauties up close

I sometimes feel like I'm cheating when I use photographs as inspiration but I love to use pictures from the past in my work for their historical significance. I use a lot of pictures from the Library of Congress and I use pictures from my grandmother's photo album from when she was a girl in the 1910's and 20's. I add my spin on the work and change it to make it my own instead of copying the picture completely.
