Painting - Oil
The Original picture was created digitally from which the prints on Fine art America are printed. The final and one and only painting of this has been completed in oil in the style of the old masters
.This painting is a homage to Michelle Obama and I was inspired to create this as such when president Obama , the first black president of the USA was elected.
'This picture is only racist if you wish it to be. I see it for what it means to me. Look again at the flag. It is not crumpled up in the small of her back. It is draped over the chair and around her. I see it as a symbol of a nation that once deemed the black people as nothing more than livestock, to now protecting, comforting, shielding and elevating them to the point of equality where a black man or woman can hold the highest office of power in our nation. This picture shouldn't spark thoughts of racism. It should be a symbol of how far we have come. But if all you see is racism, then maybe we haven't come as far as I think'
