Barack Obama President Elect The Greening of America
Suzanne Giuriati Cerny
Painting - Oil On Canvas
President Obama not only stands for what can be right in America, but what might be right for international relations without war. It's hard, we can't feed everyone, but we can be glad that this president has taken steps to feed some of us here at home. The Food Stamp President? How funny is that, when hard working citizens are out of work in this difficult economy? I just know that this president has done some interesting steps towards helping the unemployed and those without health care or other barriers to medical services. I am not particularly political, I try to follow issues on all sides. Nevertheless, President Obama has a certain energy, a certain appeal, and he will be a part of the American story forever. This was painted when Obama was President Elect. My vision was to represent the conviction that the ideas of this man's campaign were not just a background of empty words. Rather, that they persist in the forefront of his mind.
A viewer of this painting wrote: To me, this use of color places the subject in the multi-dimensional social world of which he's not just in the forefront as an icon but is a man who is solidly amidst all that is occurring.
