Here is an excellent acrylic example from Clayton Singleton: “…painted with layers of color covered with one “skin” color overlayed with an image of Obama with the Presidential oath written and scored throughout the image. I painted this after Barack Obama won the 44th Presidency. It was displayed in The Selden Gallery and published on January 20, 2009 in Portfolio Magazine.”
Something Wonderful – YWC (Yes We Can) 2009Monday, April 6th, 2009 | 2 Comments »
Now for something wonderful! This is a sculpture portrait “YWC (Yes We Can) 2009” was created by who is a plastic surgeon in Berlin, Germany. The attention to detail is amazing. I now know who to look up the next time I need an upgrade! More photos inside.
So, not only did I miss out on the Ugly Betty painting, but I also just learned about these two great paintings that were up for auction recently: “I call these ‘gold Obamas’ – Painted on a base of gold metallic acrylic, which gives the portrait a golden glow.” Individual images below.
Jerry Breen says: “Here are two very different portraits of President-elect Obama that I recently completed. The first is a new addition to a series of unique calligraphy portraits that I’ve done over the years. My calligraphy portrait of Barack Obama “In His Own Words” is literally that – Obama’s own words, from his eloquent keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, rendered by hand in calligraphy, actually form his portrait!” Jump inside to see the second image…
