Noted Artists Refuse to Paint Trump’s Official Portrait: Twelve of the nation’s most revered portrait artists-including the woman who painted Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush – have refused the White House’s invitation to capture Mr. Trump on canvas.
Gee, I have a friend who paints houses part time who I bet would be willing to give it a try. Hell, he’d probably do it for a couple of six-packs of Rolling Rock and a bucket of fried chicken. Also, I have an aunt (on my mother’s side) who has always been pretty darn good at those “Paint By the Number” projects. I assume the primary number on a Trump portrait would have to be the number “45” – which I believe is the color orange.
Anyway, she’s quite elderly and from Ohio, so she’d be right up Trump’s demographic alley and would probably love to take on a project with such meaning. Also, she sure appears to have lots of time on her hands – at least that’s what her doctors tell me. Of course I’m her only beneficiary, so naturally I monitor things like that rather closely. And of course now that Trump people are fully in charge of the EPA, I’m sure they’ll have no issues if she uses lead paint.
