I admire the Obamas, but I hate their portraits.

Edit: Yes; it's for real.

Well.........it's different. I mean they're good paintings but, official portraits? I thought those were kind of like , I don't know, a highschool graduation pic? I'd have to see some other POTUS portraits.

Clinton's official Smithsonian portrait is even odder. Eh. Art is definitely a person taste.

It certainly is personal taste.  I feel like they could have had the same results and allowed an elementary school to do their portraits.

The Clinton portrait is on loan by it's owners. The original is in storage.

Why is original in storage? Was it stained? :)

I don't think they are awful. His is less flattering to him than hers is to her.

Again, everyone will talk about how much they love/hate these portraits. Just like a day at a museum! :)

Is Barack sitting in a chair amidst falling leaves?  And that dress takes so much attention away from Michelle.

Yes. Must be an ode to his love of the great outdoors Rose Garden. :)

I don't think they're falling. Perhaps they're some sort of climbing vine along a wall. It looks like kudzu. :unsure:
