Andy Thomas sent in this truly amazing and inspiring painting: “… An African-American runs for President, not as a “Civil Rights” candidate but as an American… But, before that could happen, John Jay fought against slavery, Harriet Tubman led the helpless to freedom, Frederick Douglas influenced Abe Lincoln…” Jump inside for the rest.

Normally, we only post art that explicitly represents the likeness of Barack Obama. So, this one from Dickson Brown was almost deleted outright. That would have been a shame… Jump inside to learn why this image is so powerful.

Everyone thank Ashleigh Nicolson for sending this in: “I’m not exactly sure what this means but still find it a stunning image. Jeremiah Palecek’s work is always surreal, strange, and definitely eccentric. My favorite image of Obama to date! Please note I didn’t paint this!”

From There to Here, Portrait of our President with Irises

Friday, February 27th, 2009 | 2 Comments »

Here is some fine art sent in by Elizabeth Fox: “The portrait shows a head-on image of America’s first African American President. My intent was to incorporate more charm and personal tenderness in his likeness than can be seen in other portraits. Irises in the background surround his head like a crown. Historically, irises symbolize faith, valor, and wisdom.” Learn more and see the full work inside.
