"All that I am, I owe to my Mother".
Mary Washington Blesses Her Son George Washington Before His Inaguration as President. March 12, 1789.

I sought to capture a moment in our country’s history so relevant
to our culture today, March 12th, 1789. The moment in this picture
is a testament to the strong mothers of our culture, to love and carry
on for your families-- unselfishly in spite of hard times-- and remain
true to your faith in God. Mary Washington a widow and single
mother to seven children, lived and loved well.
; George Washington met his mother Mary in her bedroom sitting
area with his profound news, he would lead our new country. The
Mother of our country put her hand on his head for her final
blessing and said Heaven’s and his Mother’s blessing would
always be with him. They embraced at her bedroom door and said
tearful goodbyes as she would journey to Heaven soon after.

George Rogers Clark Crossing The Wabash River, 1779
Divine Possibility
© 2010

I began this painting as commission from Jim Reger of King George County to pay tribute to a Virginia hero from colonial times-- the Revolutionary War in 1779.
I saw this story as a divine possibility, God allowed men to do the impossible.
When the war was not going well in the northwest territory, Clark, a savvy Caroline county native with some frontier military experience in Kentucky, got a commission from governor Patrick Henry to form an expedition to the Ohio valley.
The expedition of 170 men traveled 180 miles, 24 days in an Ohio winter, with water to their shoulders, soaked to the bone, slept by meager fires, without ample food.
The fort was surrendered, very orderly, General Hamilton wept when he understood how few men Clark had in his force.
