Jerusha and Lovinia Smith

 I enjoyed painting Hyrum Smith's wife and their daughter Lovinia.    This was a commission from a descendant that wanted paintings of her pioneer women ancestors.  I love the idea of honoring these women, I could only find one rough sketch of Jerusha and one photo of Lovina. I hope these colorful and whimsical images  that were painted in the "Forgotten Wives" style will start a conversation about these great women in our history, we have so much to learn from them. 8x10 watercolor.
