Oil Portrait: Dan Wathen on His Harley Davidson

Oil portrait of Dan Wathan on his Harley Davidson.  Daniel Wathan was the Chief Justice of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court from 1992 until 2001, when he resigned to enter the 2002 Gubernatorial election.  One of two portraits of Wathan by Christopher Cart.  The official portrait  hangs in Kennebec County Superior Court.  The two paintings neatly illustrate Dan Wathan’s weighty dignity contrasted with a certain devil may care, John Wayne attitude.
