Acrylic and Pastel on canvas

This portrait of  America's beloved
40th President Ronald Reagan*,
was inspired by the current times
we the people find ourselves in.
Mike created President Reagan's
portrait after considerable
research and some preliminary
sketches.  He then painted from a
live model in costume, from a
mannequin costumed by the artist,
and from photographic materials.
