This is a series begun in 2004 while living in Charleston, SC. My friend, a womens history professor, got me thinking about historical biases and I began to consider the fallacies that lay before me. What"s up with those people painted on ivory...
John Adams was the second president of the US and the first Vice President. "Power always thinks that it is doing God 's service when it is violating all his laws" is one of my favorite quotes of his. He was defeated from re- election by Jefferson, portrayed next (above). Complete May 2013. Sold.
Colonel Richard Thomas was a US Representative from Pennsylvania. He served in the American Revolutionary War as a colonel. He was elected as a Federalist to the 4th, 5th and 6th Congress. Also he was a farmer. The original is by James Peale. This, complete January of 2013. Available. Sold.
The original is another from my favorite miniature portrait painter, Anna Claypoole Peale. Not much is known about the sitter except her name at this point. She has a very appealing (pun!) look and is perfect for this can. If she doesn't sell soon I may decide to keep this one. Like. 2013. Oops, Sold.
