This is the sixth painting in a series of works titled Heroes of the American Revolution where I transform historical figures into modern day superheroes like Batman, Deadpool, and in this case Abigail Wonder Woman Adams.
Abigail Smith Adams, wife and confidant of John Adams was born on November 11, 1744 in Weymouth, Massachusetts. She was a member of the Quincy family, a well-established and politically involved Massachusetts family. By birthright and manner, Abigail Smith was an indefatigable New Englander. Educated by her mother, the future First Lady proved as learned and enlightened as any of her contemporaries. Abigail was a voracious reader and wrote extensively. Notwithstanding the stigma associated with women and politics, Abigail openly expressed her political beliefs in letters to her husband. She confessed “my pen is always freer than my tongue.”
