Leaves and Obama

They had a ceremony yesterday, to show off the official Presidential portrait of former President Obama.

I sat there and looked at the image for probably sixty seconds.

First, the leafy green business kinda takes your breath away.  Why the leafy background?  Unknown. Most presidential portraits have a dark background, so this is a bit odd.

Second, the chair? Looks like a regular dining room chair.  It actually appears to be a small chair because he's so oversized.

Frankly, most folks will view it as some radical art design and just laugh over the image.  The leafy thing will discussed for months and probably end up as some trend.
