I made this little portrait of Obama in oil pastels. The background is water color washes of overlapping geometric shapes.

This is the first political figure I have ever drawn and perhaps it is interesting to think of them as symbols of policy decisions that have real world effects. Obama is an interesting character and I look forward to seeing what happens in the next year.

I have yet to hear him address the arts and would be curious of his position.

The drawing is on ebay right now.
