Behind the series....

On June 8, 1789 representative James Madison introduced a series of 39 amendments to the U.S. Constitution.  Collectively, the first 10 amendments are known as the Bill of Rights. The Bill enumerated freedoms not explicitly indicated in the main body of the Constitution, such as freedom of religion, freedom of speech, a free press, and free assembly; the right to keep and bear arms; freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, security in personal effects, and freedom from warrants issued without probable cause.

Over 200 years additional amendments were added that have curtailed or expanded personal freedoms, but by and large, the Bill of Rights set a standard unprecedented in the world for guaranteeing freedoms to all people.

Despite the Bill of Rights our society has struggled with moral and human rights conflicts throughout its history. My new series of paintings explores these conflicts and provides a nonjudgmental glimpse into the contrasts existing in our very diverse society.

Each painting is created with acrylic on canvas - 36” x 24.” Signed and numbered (50) archival prints are available on request. These gicleés are printed on 22" x 19" stock with a white border for matting and framing, and offered at $75 each. Email, or call 610.566.0334.
