portrait of Princess Daazrhaii Johnson which was made in the winter of 2017 as a study for a larger painting. I painted Princess with her permission in response to the T*$%MP Administration passing legislation that proposes ending a decades long fight to protect the Arctic and preserve this, one of the last remaining wilderness areas in (so called) north america.
Princess Daazhraii Johnson is Gwich'in from Arctic Village, Alaska, and has been a long-time advocate of protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil development.
Protect the Sacred. No Drilling in the Arctic.
