About the Book
Aesthetically it is what one would call a tug-of-war and it requires a lot of reworking and revising, and trial-and-error, to figure out.
This book is a meandering train-of-thought written in verse. It is my attempt to weave a narrative that links together a 40 year span of stylistically diverse paintings.
As an artist for over forty odd years, my biggest gig so far has been as the official White House Portraitist. During the past two years, I have had the privilege of painting our DearLeader over a couple dozen times looking his authoritarian best in all kinds of remarkable settings. And now, after much anticipation, I have finally assembled those paintings into a 48 page full-color book that includes personal commentaries, as well. It has been truly an inspiration to be so close and present with the man with the golden touch, who in every sense of the phrase, is Making America Great Again.
