Fantastic picture! Thanks for posting it - be assured
I will keep it with all my important possessions.
Truly a great picture - do you know who painted it?
Even with my glasses I can't make out the name.

Igor Babailov


Personally I've never heard of him before.

Much much better than all the photos the left posts of the President with a hitler moustache.

Looks great.

Nice picture, and I like Bush and all, but I don't think he's ready to join the four on Rushmore yet, if that's the implication of the painting.

JMHO.

I see it as he stands in the shadow of Mount Rushmore, proudly and with resolve to live up to that high standard in these trying times. I know this kind of person, he believes in the power of prayer and it moves him. He is truly humbled by the awesome responsibility laid before him, and the only possible way he can shoulder it is to call upon his 'higher power'. I see no evidence of monumental pride in Mr Bush, but I can see where a painter might want to integrate Mr Bush into this scenery. History will judge this president in a very positive light, and Im certain that Im purposely understating that case.

These are the times that try mens souls, and greatness is born amongst the tribulation and strife. God bless the President of the United States.

I'm still looking for that picture of GWB as a well dressed Marshal Earp

It does not show the whole picture - the original showed a full view, Bush is urinating on Saddam's grave...

I'd like this painting a lot more without the background clutter. Just a typical dark portrait washout would have been nice. The Mt. Rushmore reliefs are rather distracting, are poorly done, and don't add anything except a sappy message. And move the little white dot on his left eye (your right) a bit to the right; he looks just a tiny bit cross-eyed. Otherwise, I love it!

I love this one of GWB, but you've got to look at his other work, especially his Hillary.

I dunno. Portraits are always more flattering than real-life photography. But that's more or less the look she had during the first term.

More "less" than "more". She would have to lose about 70 pounds to look that slim.

Even back in the first term? I was going by the hair-style and dating it back to then. Didn't she start to widen out while in the White House?

It's not something I ever really wanted to keep up with...

Excellent picture! I wonder if this was the picture W commissioned from the artist? It said on Babailov's page he did a commissioned picture for W...

Babailov is quite a good artist!

You're quite right -- we've already expended far too much time and bandwidth contemplating that heathenous wench's likeness and girth.

Wonderful addition! Thanks! I and many others are convinced that W is headed for exalted territory but not before Ronald Reagan please!

If you tilt this painting back and forth it changes to a chameleon.

You're so right, I hadn't thought of that before I whipped this out.

Reagan first, and if there's rock face left, than Bush.

Oh...!
I can hear the knuckle-dragging parrots' comments already!

Is this the official Presidential portrait?

A very nice painting of the man who is overseeing the destruction of our Constitution...national sovereignty...and liberties. He is in good company with Lincoln.

There was a discussion about the Mt. Rushmore idea with Reagan and George W Bush on another thread a few days ago. A mining engineer said that it would not be possible to put another face on Mt. Rushmore, they had used already with the four already on there all of the rock that could be carved.
Reagan and Bush would have to go on a different mountain.

If I remember correctly, there is a picture of President Bush standing in front of Mt. Rushmore, which might possibly be the inspiration for this painting. The painting looks a lot like the picture.
