    Norman Rockwell certainly had a way of capturing the essence of a subject with a brush.
    All-in-all ... I think the President's portion of the portrait is fairly good ... I don't know what happened with the rest of the painting though ... :dunno:

    It looks like a reference to his drug use.

    Chicago and Hawaii flowers, as well. All part of his history.
    I like Michelle's a lot--the dress is very cool.
