The Impact of Michelle

It is estimated over four million people have visited the portraits of the Obamas at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. Later this year these portraits will go on tour.

From Wikipedia: "The portrait artist, Amy Sherald, was selected by the First Lady. Michelle Obama's face is stylized in shades of gray, an artistic technique known as grisaille, a key theme in works by Sherald, and the background is a simple blue evoking American folk art."

While taking photographs, I noticed viewers at both Obama portraits exhibited a combination of quiet reverence and longing ... perhaps processing a nation that traded a sense of hope for gratuitous bullyism and mean tweets.
