Becca Balint - Vermont's first woman and first gay Senate President
The Vermont Senate elected Ms. Balint President Pro Tempore on January 6, 2021. This is the same day that The Proud Boys and Oath Keepers - two ultra-right wing groups, stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overturn the 2020 Presidential election. This portrait is a one-of-a-kind assemblage. I made it of non-recyclable trash on canvas board and an upcycled frame. The artwork measures 10 x 8 inches. It is signed on the back and ready to hang. I created it in April of 2021.
