Over his shoulder

Over his Shoulder

Piece description from the artist

On a chilly January morning, I intended to photograph the US Capital at sunrise – well, I missed it by about an hour! This perspective was taken over the shoulder of the "Authority of Law", one of the statues in front of the Library of Congress. The two statues are imposing figures commissioned in 1932 and completed in 1935 by the artist James Earle Fraser.

About Judith Rawcliffe

Augusta, NJ

Judy is a native of Northwest New Jersey, currently living in the Washington, DC area. Growing up, Judy was introduced to the creative world by her Aunt Rose Papaleo, who was a renowned oil painter. While her children were still in school, Judy designed and published a number of counted cross stitch patterns under the name of Willow Ridge Designs. Although Judy has always had an interest in photography, it wasn't until many miles walked with a new puppy that the real spark was lit, brought on by a fascination with the shapes, colors, and textures of mushrooms. When Judy made the move to Alexandria, VA, she made many trips into DC taking in and photographing the city. In August 2019 and February 2020, Judy was selected to showcase her work with RAW: Natural Born Artists – an organization that introduces local creatives to the local community and beyond – representing the Washington, DC area. More recently, Judy has turned her eye to her true passion – nature photography, while exploring the many state & national wildlife parks in Virginia.
