Presidents Day

It's Presidents Day here in the US, so what better time to check out some presidential art, like these prints of Abe Lincoln by Maine artist Justin Richel. (Available at Craftland.) From Justin's website: "My paintings subvert the traditional genre of portraiture by approaching the subject with the sentiment of an Iconoclast. Yet my intention is to “rebuild” the image rather than destroy it. I take advantage of the cyclical nature of history and its unfailing tendency to repeat itself."
