Rolf Armstrong This was the first painting of Armstrong's favorite model, who was Jewel Flowers. She was 17 at the time and had never modeled before. She turned out to be his favorite model and he painted her about 60 times. Armstrong was one of the few artists who actually painted from the live model, rather than photographs of the model. This painting is known as "How Am I Doing" and was done in 1940.
