portraits

RIP Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

This is the first portrait I’ve done in several months; I think the last one I painted was in February or March. I finished this over the weekend but am just now posting it to my blog.

The world definitely didn’t get enough of Ginsburg. I honestly was not even aware of the extent she fought (and won) battles for women’s equal rights. What a selfless and magnificent human being she was!

I usually don’t post political things to my blog, but I really don’t think this is a political post. Rather this is the celebration of a strong woman who is worthy of much respect for her bravery. She is a true heroine.

As I said, this was my first portrait in months, and throughout the painting I realized how much I miss painting portraits. So I’ve decided to start painting portraits again periodically.

I have a few people in mind to paint, and I’m sure the list will keep growing. I’m not a realistic painter, but rather I try to capture the emotion and personality of the person in my portraits.

Thank you for supporting me in my artistic journey!
