“In starting this project, my aim was to prepare a presentation of the President that conveyed the strength of his person along with the strength of the elected office he holds. I quickly determined that I would interpret my bust of the President using my portrait painting style. The process involved the layering of color over the entire three-dimensional form of the bust. I then accentuated the features of the face using new currents of color that flow rhythmically over all the facial features”
