Historical Portrait: The Skating Minister

Historical Portrait: The Skating Minister by Sir Henry Raeburn c.  1795,
acrylic on panel,  (5" x 7"),  2015


Considering that spring is around the corner, I find it funny that I made a winter-themed historical portrait. It's a famous painting by Raeburn and one that I've always admired. My version isn't an exact copy for obvious reasons…the face isn't the same and I didn't paint the whole image with the skates. But I still think my version is a sweet little historical portrait and captures the moment of gliding on ice.
