I finished this painting this afternoon while watching the inauguration of the new President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. And while watching it on tv I literally fell in love with him. He seems so genuine, so humble, so concerned, so truthful yet so strong, so powerful, so intense and so proud ... I cried and shivered and smiled and laughed and vibrated watching him and his family and his entourage and the incredible crowd that showed up to celebrate his arrival. I am a Canadian, not an American, yet the joy and hope and proudness I felt today made me realize the real possibilities of changes starting now and a sense that everything is possible ... I love you Mr. President, I love the emotions you allowed yourself and everyone else to show and feel today. BRAVO, MR. OBAMA !!! My little Queen of Heart painting is available on eBay tonite. Come over and have a look!
