Latest Piece - Victoria Woodhull

Victoria Woodhull
36x24 Inches
Oil on Canvas

I finished this piece just in time for Open Studios on Friday at the Stutz.  Victoria Woodhull is known for being the first woman to run for president of the United States.  Her and her sister were also the first female stockbrokers and Victoria owned a newspaper.  She was in favor of free love which is not as hippie-dippy as it sounds.  Fredrick Douglass was nominated as her running mate, though he never accepted.  She spent election day in jail for publishing something in her paper that was considered obscene at the time. Also, I even got around to framing the larger watercolor study I did for this one, which turned out great.  Both of these pieces are available.
