Obama’s Face Rules the Web
Published: May 31, 2009
Perhaps not since John F. Kennedy has a presidency so fanned the flames of painterly ardor among artists. Yes, this is the painting you saw on the front page of the New York Times! Mimi was interviewed by Randy Kennedy of that august paper, and you can read the article at the link below.


and yes, I still have copies of this painting for sale! Copies of this painting are available. they are high quality art prints, 8.5″ x11″ on fine Arches watercolor paper, hand signed by me. I am asking $40 for the print plus $6 for shipping.

    I picked up my NYtimes this morning and recognized your striking picture from when it was posted at DU.

    I’m sure everyone at DU would love to have you post this great news over there! Congratulations!

    Please tell me how I can purchase a print of your President Obama “Looking Presidential” portrait. Your likeness of him has captured a contemplative look that I find inspiring and comforting in these difficult times
