Provo artist Jon McNaughton is back with a new painting, 'The Forgotten Man,' which features President Barack Obama standing on the Constitution.
In the new painting, a man, sitting in the throes of depression on a park bench in front of a White House, is seen surrounded by 43 presidents. On the other side, Obama is standing on the Constitution ignoring the depressed man while James Madon pleading Obama not to stand on the Constitution.

I like that. Bush doesn’t know if he should say something or not. He wants to be with the new guys but know there’s something wrong.
With one exception, George Washington, a rogues gallery if ever there was one, culminating in zippy. Might be the last of the document he is standing on.
Could you explain further? Are you saying everyone but Washington was a rogue?
He did a bit of his own stepping on the Constitution in his day.
He should be much more prominent. Maybe sending in the police to break up the mob on the right.
Speechless, but that painting says it all!
You're right...where's Coolidge?? He needs to be front and center running interference.
It looks like he is tucked between Washington and Kennedy. Not too shabby. But he should have been placed right next to Reagan.
He should be much more prominent. Maybe sending in the police to break up the mob on the right."
I have not looked closely for Cal in the painting. He is one of my favorites.
