Ladies Liberty 2020 
 Oil on canvas.
40 x 36″

Ladies Liberty celebrates the election of a record number of women to Congress in the 2018 mid-term election.  The circular cloud above the capital is a copy of one of the two clouds that appeared in the Los Angeles sky on the day of the first Women’s March in January 2016.  One cloud was above the beginning of the march (Pershing Square) and the other over the end (City Hall Plaza.)
