RONALD REAGAN
Standing Firm with the Founders
Acrylic and Pastel on canvas
fabric mounted on wood,         
32 x 26".   2011-12
This portrait was created and
painted with a positive-realism
approach.  Inspired by what
President Reagan might say to
we the people regarding these
current times, Mike painted this
portrait of America's beloved
40th President standing firm in
front of a painting of America's
Founding Fathers, George
Washington, Thomas Jefferson,
and Alexander Hamilton.
After considerable research and
some preliminary sketches Mike
worked from a live model in
costume, from a mannequin
costumed by the artist, and from
photographic materials.
