Day One Hundred-Eighty One

'Mr. Lincoln'

8 x 8 oil on panel
100.00 + 4.00 s + h

I took the Daily Paintworks Challenge to paint the traditional photo of Mr. Lincoln, our 16th president. This is the picture you've seen hundreds of times, but while studying it to draw and paint him, he became more of an actual human being. I tried to search his soul, in his eyes, to discover the icon that has become a symbol for freedom in our country. It was a priviledge to take part and post my painting.
