Portrait of Judge Esther Wiggins

Judge Esther Wiggins
I have been working on a commission since December 2015 on a project for Arlington County. It was to do a portrait of a retiring judge from the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court for the 17th Judicial District.  I wasn't able to put photos up as I worked on it because they were going to have an unveiling of it in May.

Yesterday was the day that the portrait was presented at the courthouse of Arlington County, and it will hang in the courtroom that Judge Wiggins presided over for the last 18 years. It was a lovely ceremony honoring Judge Wiggins.

It was an honor to be selected as the portrait artist to paint Judge Wiggins.  It was also an honor to get to know her as I painted this portrait.  I know that Arlington County has lost a caring judge, and she will be missed.
