    I find the use of pastels in Michelle's portrait to be an interesting departure. The usual cliché in depicting African-Americans is to use bright, bold colors that evoke traditional Afro-centric clothing.

    Explain.
    Who the hell could possibly love all things Trump? And yet the slobbering, fawning, gushing libs readily admit loving all things Obama. Without shame.

    I thought it was about the "Mooch" who had an 11 day White House career.

    My bad.

    BTW...he was on Bill Maher's show just a few days back.

    Still don't know why...

    And yet the slobbering, fawning, gushing RW conservatives admit to loving all things Trump. Without shame.

    He was as good or better than whoever painted these two "official" portraits...

    That's a particularly crazy-ass statement. You have anything rational to support it?

    The weird backgrounds on the portraits give his paintings a flat, one dimensional feel. Looks like magazine art.
    I don't care for them either, too flat, no feeling of depth.
