Mary Alice Peale- sketch by suburbanbeatnik Mary Alice Peale- sketch by suburbanbeatnik
This sketch was done after meeting Kathleen Duey, author of "American Diaries: Mary Alice Peale," an excellent book, set during Revolutionary War Philadelphia, but cursed with a horrible cover. Kathleen and I laughed about the awful cover, and then I was inspired to go and do my own version of it, including a well-dressed little girl (modelled after Kirsten Dunst in "Interview with a Vampire") and a hot redcoat. Soon after I did the sketch, I signed on with my current agent; and I decided to take it to a finish.

Love it in both uncolored and colored version. I get the feeling you were inspired by Michelle Pfieffer for the girl...
