It remains to be seen what exactly will happen on the 2nd, but it's clear that these people will have a great deal to do with whatever it is. How they handle the next two years will be another story.
Oh, and for those of you watching, my website has been updated with this painting and this year's Applefest, in addition to some of my black and white work from the summer. Sometime soon I'm going to completely redo the "spots" section with all of the spot work I did this summer.
I finished these more than two months ago, but it's definitely about time that they graced the internet. They're in graphite, which is unique for professional work, I think. I liked the outcome, which is good, because it was a pretty long process. The story was about the discovery of the identity of an anonymous author who wrote about the inner workings of the Lincoln Cabinet during its' early days. Each one of the figures up there actually is someone real, which is fun. I got to really immerse myself in research. History is good.
Oh, and the two portraits below were also part of the assignment -- professors that had uncovered said discovery.
