Gotta say - I think that Obama portrait sucks.

Not in a Fox News commentator sort of way, but more in a it just looks dumb way.

Is there deeper meaning? Like is he what nature intended to be the president? Or (fill in art school theories here)?

Because it's really silly looking.

Yeah. Not an art expert, but something just seems "off" with the way it's composed. Like the background draws more attention than the subject.

I think the visual fight between the background and Obama’s in the foreground is part of the artist’s message. The flowers are from Kenya, Hawaii, and Illinois. There is a way in which Obama himself is overwhelmed by his personal background, so I rather like the imagery here, although the artistic style is not one that appeals to me aesthetically.

I like it - it’ll help his portrait stand out from the other 43

This might be the funniest thing you've posted.
I hear Syb is a big fan of the old judicial overreach around.

It's how his face is drawn. It doesn't resemble him (unless that's the point). And what Moreta said helps it make sense to me a bit better. Instead of going "What's ugly Obama doing in front of my mom's plastic table cloth circa 1989?" I'm like "Ah, that makes sense."

It's art. I don't ask questions.

They absolutely are, and BO drives them nuttier, but the artist absolutely has included a sperm "motif" in previous work. We can only hope Obama had this sort of reaction in mind when he chose the artist.

No one is hotter than Susanna Hoffs. Never was, never will be.

ETA- except maybe Sting.

Win Butler was a weird choice to accompany her.

Such a lo fi production.

She's still amazing.

Susanna Hoffs is what this stupid place thinks (blanking on the name of the PDX old actress) is.

Helen Mirren it is. She's "attractive for an old person". Susanna Hoffs is fifty fucking nine and looks like this ...

59? Damn. That's 6 years older than the still-fantastic Marisa Tomei.

I watched Spider-Man:Homecoming with my youngest over the weekend, and almost kicked her out of the house when her response to Aunt May’s appearance was “she’s old.”

Tomei aside, the film cast the character much younger than traditional portrayals. I really thought she was trolling me.

Keep in mind that your daughter does really believe that you, too, are quite old.
