Alexandria Show

I've been busy finishing up work for the Alexandria (VA) Festival of the Arts this week-end.  When I have time I like to get a painting done related to the area I'm visiting.  I found a really cool old map in the Library of Congress website and printed that out as a background.  Its of the Alexandria region during the Civil War.  Then I did a little research on that time period in Alexandria and learned about the Edmonson Sisters.  Quite a fascinating story (read about it here)... So I decided to honor them by painting their portraits over the map... I kinda like how it came out.
