These are some of the portraits I’ve painted of prominent figures of African-American heritage for Black History Month.
“Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”
“I was conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can’t say – I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.”Harriet Tubman
I painted this portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. a few years ago for a friend and it reminds me of the fact that he had a dream . . .
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’”
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
