True Secrets

Remember in my portrait of Lizzie, I included a rendering of a racy girls' "confession" magazine, "Modern Love." This is my copy of the cover of "True Secrets," a magazine in my possession at the time. I was working on my gouache (opaque watercolor) painting skills so I just copied the thing as it was, even the different typefaces of the story titles. I would guess this was about 1969 or 1970, I was still in high school when I did it. I saved the art, but the magazine has disappeared into a well-deserved oblivion.

"True Secrets" is gouache on cardstock, 6 1/2" x 9", c. 1970.
