    This painting captures something so deep and wonderful. I remember this very well – it was the night his grandmother died and a day or 2 before the elections. It was pouring rain as he spoke before a huge crowd.

    President Obama is a very good and decent man and God is on his side. And in spite of all the craziness playing out at the moment, he together with this country will come out on top. I have no doubt. None at all.

    The painting is so powerful and poignant.

    May we all keep the faith in our President, and in our own ability to contribute in the process of change. Yes We Can!

    This artist has captured a very vulnerable side of the President-he is such a transparent and mature leader. I did not remember the moment until Eleroy mentioned it, very observant
