Margaret Thatcher

This is my version of Margaret Thatcher, the iconic British Prime Minister who passed away April 7. While I wasn't particularly fond of her brand of politics (union-busting and trickle down economics), I did admire her strength as a leader. There was no shortage of good photographs to use as a reference so I chose three and created a composite of her, while knocking a few years off. This is one way to avoid violating a copyright. Mrs. Thatcher was a woman of faith, and that's another quality I admire about her.
