I could study this for a very long time! I love it!

Thanks Lenore! A bit wabi sabi, but I feel stylistically, it expresses the sentiment well.

Powerful image!! I too have used the lady, to express my feelings about the state of affairs . This painting uses many symbols of peace but shows the opposite result. F/L

Susan Esbensen replied:

I really appreciate your comment Susan! I specifically painted this for the 'Against All Odds' exhibition honoring the life of Paul Robeson. Opening tonight at the Trenton City Museum, at the Ellarslie Mansion.

I love the bold design...which first caught my eye...but there is so much more here, isn't there! I have been wanting to do a Liberty in Army Boots for a long time but it hasn't quite jelled in my head yet let alone found its way our through my hands....

Susan Esbensen replied:

I hear you Betty! I often have ideas, that do not coalesce into a tangible image. Or other times, they shape shift as I paint and transform into something entirely different from what I imagined..

Kumar Annamalai

Oh my--this is a powerful image and I admit I am partial to the concept. My children's series is all about freedom, liberty etc. and there is a somber underside much like your powerful painting. This is a masterpiece!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and wish you a happy Fourth of July! Lovely and beautiful as ever

Susan Esbensen replied:

Thank you for the supportive and outstanding comment Reynold! . Have a happy 4th of July and continue to teach the liberty story through your own beautiful and powerful work!

What a powerful expression, every bit as resonant today as during Paul Robeson's lifetime. His words and this incredible painting give strength and hope in the never-ending struggle for justice and freedom. fav

Susan Esbensen replied:

Dawn thank you so much for such a well thought out response! I appreciate the recognition of my painting as an expression of the ongoing struggle for justice and freedom for all. And as a tribute to the life long work of Paul Robeson.

A powerfully compelling work, Susan, evoking immediate resonance with modern matters!

Susan Esbensen replied:

Great comment Joel! I took a risk and it was accepted into the museum show.

Susan Esbensen replied:

Thank you Mitch. I painted this specifically for the 'Against All Odds' exhibition to be held at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie. A themed exhibition honoring the life and contributions of Paul Robeson.
