Lincoln by deviantmike423 Lincoln by deviantmike423
Watercolor on arches 12X16"

Some memorable quotes from Abraham Lincoln:

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?

A woman is the only thing I am afraid of that I know will not hurt me.

Two of my favorite things are sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe of sweet hemp, and playing my harmonica.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.

Another excellent composition here Mike. Colour schemes and the detail in the portait itself are sublime.

Interesting letter!
I spent some time in Port Gibson (did a painting of a house there that's in my gallery) Grand Gulf, and of course Vicksburg. But you probably already knew that huh?
LOL.
