About the Book
When a brush is dabbed in oil paint and then is stroked across a canvas surface, what inevitably comes out of it, at least for me, is a painting of a figure.
For well over forty years, I have relied on the figure not as a subject not literally attempt to copy, but as a source for evoking the subtle emotions that lie just below the surface.
This book is a collection of some of those paintings.
As an artist for over forty odd years, my biggest gig so far has been as the official White House Portraitist. During the past two years, I have had the privilege of painting our DearLeader over a couple dozen times looking his authoritarian best in all kinds of remarkable settings. And now, after much anticipation, I have finally assembled those paintings into a 48 page full-color book that includes personal commentaries, as well. It has been truly an inspiration to be so close and present with the man with the golden touch, who in every sense of the phrase, is Making America Great Again.
