Week-end giggle via Andrew Sullivan. There is a website that, believe it or not, features bad paintings of Barack Omaba. Delightfully awful. Yet I wish I could do this much.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Good president, bad paintings. :
I actually like several of the more naive - outsider art-looking portraits like the top and bottom ones in your post. I have what is considered a "bad" portrait by an outsider artist who is becoming collectable and I love it. (Soon, on my blabla blog I will do a video interveiw with Earl K Swanigan.) It shows so much of the Artist in the painting. Thanks for the link...

I like to think that they were made like this on purpose. Otherwise I wouldn't want to be in the shoes of the frustrated artists who painted them :)

As the pre-eminent collector of Earl Swanigan art in North America,
I must respectfully comment that Swanigan's paintings of Barack Obama are landmark works of brilliance. His work will be measured against that of Gilbert Stuart and his visionary portraits of Obama will hang in the Louvre before the close of this century.
