Jeffersonian Funk

Jeffersonian Funk

Piece description from the artist

TJ has that passive magnetism that's difficult to resist. Soon I found myself getting my Once-Leader-Of-The-Free-World Stare on and looking right into Thomas Jefferson’s green eyes flashing out from a $2 bill. I wondered about him and wanted to learn more about him. That’s where this painting started.

Looking for a sloppy-dressing, scared of public-speaking, wine-guzzling, violin-playing Presidential Playa who hurt his violin-playing hand – permanently! – trying to impress a lady? Thomas Jefferson also didn't mention that he was a US President on his tombstone because he had "mixed feeling about politics" after his two terms. My research into Thomas Jefferson revealed some wonderful – and some reprehensible – sides that make up the complex and very human Third President of the United States.

The $2 bill is colored with different shades and tints of green, but luckily, this painting has no such limitations.
