James Madison Makes My Monday

Sarah's penchant for portraiture dovetailed with a resurgence of presidential preoccupation this weekend resulting in some serious sketching. Not unlike artists before her, she drew study after study...empirically re-assessing and re-interpreting her "suitable for framing" book illustration of James Madison---our country's 4th leader, and her preferred president du jour.

Her tenacity, focus and love of art Make My Monday.
