My first portrait of Prez Trump, in a Modern style
I went Modern when I grabbed my pen to ink the portrait of our new President, Donald J. Trump, then framed it for a deck of cards. The first thing that pops into my mind when I hear the word Trump is … Play Your Trump Card!
A notable painter is always commissioned to paint an Official Portrait of the President and the first lady for the White House gallery, a tradition since Gilbert Stuart’s portrait of President George Washington in 1797.
And one of many decisions our Presidents and First Ladies make as they leave the White House at the end of their term is who will paint their official portraits for the Smithsonian.
Benefactors underwrite the cost of these portraits to honor the President and First Lady and to present historical portraits for public gallery viewing at the Smithsonian.
My portrait of President Donald Trump is an unofficial portrait.
Trump of Diamonds, Hearts, Spades, and Clubs
I framed Donald Trump’s portrait with all of the playing card suits, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades, and Clubs, so you could play with a full deck.
Here’s a link to a coloring page. Go wild with your color palette when you paint, like I did.
