Michelle Obama Portrait
The New Museum in the Big Apple has unveiled this hastily-knocked up mess by Elizabeth Peyton "in tribute" to incoming First Lady Michelle Obama: Michelle and Sasha Obama Listening to Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention August 2008. Catchy title. A good portrait of this attractive lady with her pretty daughter would have been a far better tribute. The cheek of some people! If I'd painted a portrait this awful, I'd have overpainted it. View this ghastly mess in the exhibition Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton. Let's all look forward to the day when a talented artist does the official portrait.
