President Bill Clinton by Chuck Close

I love visiting the National Portrait Gallery in DC to see how artists have painted the faces
President Clinton by Chuck Close, oil on canvas 2006
 of the United States Presidents over the centuries.

I have always admired Chuck Close's portraits and his use of negative & positive space
as well as shapes & grids to define the whole.
