Ben Franklin Neon. Yellow, Green, Orange or Blue

I am not an expert on these things but I think this is more marketable. while I was in Philly; I had a meeting with the manager of the Independence Visitors Center while I was in Philly and she talked about the image acceptance process. The painting of Benjamin Franklin flying a kite with white hair would never have passes with today's strict acceptance criteria. I only hope that I have is eye color correct. This bust was done while he was in France. They believe that this mask was used to create the famous bust. I thought it was a death mask but I was wrong.
