The Story of "Women Who Shatter Barriers"  -  Ruth Bader Ginsburg

2018 is the Year of Women. So...to build on that momentum, I am creating mixed media portraits of woman I admire for their courage, contribution, brilliance, and heart.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the fourth in my portrait series. 

"I try to teach through my opinions, through my speeches, how wrong it is to judge people on the basis of what they look like, color of their skin, whether they’re men or women." —Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a U.S. Supreme Court justice, and the second woman to be appointed to the position.

Born on March 15, 1933, in Brooklyn, New York, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg graduated at the top of her class from Columbia Law School during a time when her law professors resented her for taking up a spot that they felt should have been filled by a man. She has championed for the rights of women, and men and fought for equal treatment of women in the workplace. Her fiery opinions and advocacy for gender equality and the fair treatment of women have won her the reputation as a modern day super-hero. She was appointed by President Carter to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 1980 and was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Clinton in 1993. RGB: The Documentary, released in May 2018, gives the public an intimate glimpse into the exceptional life of an exceptional woman. I had so much fun painting this portrait. Ruth owns many collars that she wears with her Justice robes. She wears specific collars for dissent and majority opinions. The collar she is wearing in the painting was made for her in South Africa.

I create the background images of the portraits digitally with photoshop. I then print, adhere, and prime the background on a 8x10 inch canvas panel. I paint the subject of the portrait with oil paint over the primed background. I varnish the entire painting when the painting is completely dried and cured.

I use the highest quality artist oil paint and varnish. The original multi-media painting arrives at your home framed and ready to hang.

I take every step to ensure the image is as accurate as possible to the original painting. However variations in color may occur due to monitor differences. 

In addition to the original painting, you can order canvas & paper prints in various sizes. Click the “Select Options" drop down menu for sizes and price.
