Congressman Fred Upton

Thursday was the unveiling of my portrait of U.S. Congressman Fred Upton from Michigan’s 6th district. It hangs in the Rayburn Building in Washington D.C. A number of public figures spoke just before the unveiling, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, and Senator Lamar Alexander. On Friday, Fred gave us a great tour of the Capitol Building. Many thanks to Congressman Upton’s staff and to Jean Daniel, Camille Massie, and Lee Fonvielle of J. Daniel Portraiture and Fine Art.
