I love Ben Franklin as much as the next person...

...and Jefferson was one of my heroes too. It's great to live just a few blocks from Independence Hall and imagine them coming and going so many years ago. But when I see the tour trollies carrying the slogan "Philly's got BENergy," I can only think of the sad slogan "Joementum," and it seems so desperate...

Benjamin Franklin was an incredible man! I have tried to bring him back to life with a "Fresh Look" of Ben. A NEW portrait I have just completed in honor of his 300th birthday. My portrait was used for the New Town Seal of Franklin, MA; the first town to name themselves in his honor.
It is a Realist painting technique that dates back to the Renaissance time. Ben Franklin's eyes will follow you around the room much like the Mona Lisa.
