Inauguration Day

With the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama, it's a day of great hope for America, and for the world.

Yes, a day of great joy for everyone. May our new administration inspire us to act with hope and peace and justice to heal the wounds of the past.

Indeed it is. btw- love the C-stands. serious setup for umbrellas you got there brother. :)

Erik Bongers said...

So, are those the steps to the Capital behind you? Yes, that's a perfect spot for a quick presidential portrait.
Hmmm, looks crowded already.

And did you use the same C-stands when you painted the leaving president at the white house?
Dick Cheney should have been more carefull when he came to see progress of the portrait.

You may wonder how Europe (well..Flanders in Belgium) is following the inauguration.
Well, live of course on national TV, just like you. Obama hype in Europe? We even have Obama gadgets like cups, t-shirts, you name it.
A first sign that Obama is boosting the economy.

So can we share in your excitement?
Let me reply myself: Yes we can!

I am hoping for the best even though I did not vote him. In fact, I am praying really hard for America.....

I should have mention that the photo was taken a few years ago at a plein-air painting event in New Paltz It was a rainy and very cold day, so I needed the full umbrella coverage and fingerless gloves.
