    Bust of Barack Obama



    The presidency of Barack Obama has inspired hope for change in our nation and the world at large.





    As an artist he has moved me to create a bronze bust sculpture in his image and likeness. I feel compelled to pay homage to a man that cares about the people of our country and how they live and prosper. I believe that Barack Obama has true compassion for the American people and their dream. He has intent on making a more positive environment through both political stability, and economic growth. I have invested my entire life savings into this sculptural project with unwaivering faith in the man and his cause. I believe that, we as a people, together with Barack Obama's presidency can make a positive strive to set our country back on it's proper path for growth. I hope to draw attention and awareness to our political, environmental, and economic issues by providing a visual image of our leader that will remind us of our purpose and goals. Barack Obama's presidency will help us to reshape how we want our country governed, and how we relate with the rest of the world.
