Chester Arthur

"Chester Arthur"
4 x 6 inches
acrylic on board
(summer of 2009)

Chester Arthur is one of the least recognized in a presidential lineup, despite the 'stache. In reality, his presidency was mostly lethargic and dull. He did however sign off on legislation that specifically banned Chinese immigration. Oops. I like this painting because it is bright and cheerful, and he looks like a jolly man.
