RBG Studies

Oil on wood panel, 12 x 12, 2019.

Who could be more iconic than Ruth Bader Ginsberg? RBG is a symbol around the globe.

She is a Supreme Court Justice, who wears her dissent collar with pride. She is steadfast.

I painted her as we know her today, and then I went into the archives and painted the beautiful young woman who came first. These became studies for a larger painting.

A youthful RBG reminds us all that the icon was first just a woman,

striving to be exceptional.
