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.
