Lady Liberty Original
Original enamel on canvas. 24x24 inches. Canvas stretched on a wood frame and completely finished and ready for the wall.
Lady Liberty is a powerful symbol of the United States of America. She has always represented a progressive intellectual world view. She has been a feminist long before women had the right to vote. The poem inscribed on her very body has preached the benefits of inclusivity and acceptance even when the many of our citizens struggle to get on board.
Words from the artist - "Hands down, Lady Liberty is my favorite image. She is the first painting I created after moving to New York, which is where I’ve always wanted to live. I was 30 when I finally made it here. I always have felt like this image is a kind of a victory painting. Sometimes, I think it may be a self portrait of sorts.
There is such an optimism and magic about this painting that even I don’t understand. Lady Liberty helped me launch my career as a full-time artist and she brought me my first real commercial success. I have sold Lady Liberty again and again. I have been commissioned to paint her in all sizes, in daytime settings, in nighttime settings, for both public and private collectors. She hangs in almost every state in the U.S. and many countries all over the world. One of my former art professors once asked me if I ever tired of painting her. I don’t, and I continue to see her in new ways. "
