I've been taking a course in digital painting, and I painted a picture of Joe Biden.

It's for all of you. Hope you like it.

ETA: the composition has a Superman-like quality which is very becoming for Joe.

79. You nailed it

I’m always a bit wary of overblown patriotic symbolism because it can go so wrong. But I like what you’ve done here, perhaps because we truly need hope and the determination to rescue the country from slipping into the darkness of corruption and bring the death of idealism. You’ve depicted our hope and our determination to protect and defend our national idea and the person who, above anyone else, we are choosing to lead us into our destiny as we see ourselves.

Joe Biden is who chance, or destiny, or karma, or whatever you want to call it, is the person who is going to lead us out of the near collapse of everything this country stands for in potentiality.

The feeling I get is that we are more, much more, than the forces that are trying to destroy us. Our determination, which will be evident in who we pick out to lead us, is to stand strong behind a leader who understands and promises the entirety of the task at hand and who will set us on the path that’s required to do it.

My observation of your painting is on the emotional level because we are, right now, in that moment of choice that will determine our future. You have captured that moment quite successfully. By electing Joe our intentions are loud and clear and pure as to what we want our future to be. Thanks for depicting this so well. It’s not easy to paint patriotism well but you’ve done it.

80. Very nice... the downturn in the eye corners

has given him such a determined look.. even through the sunglasses.. that is the thing about Joe Biden.. we have this image of him locked in our heads about being the compassionate person, but if you meet him in person.. he can chill your blood with a certain look.. a good thing when you have to deal with the likes of Putin and others..

Daines and Bullock are fighting it out right now for the seat with Bullock looking pretty damn good. If Bullock gets in we'll have Tester and Bullock to fight for our rights. Tester is a bull on Veterans rights and Bullock has a great political background as proven and tried Governor coupled with his professional education it's a win win. Montana needs to flip out of this biased stinking red hole that it's mired down in. One can hope and vote.

138. Thank you for the welcome.

No, I had no idea Skinner was the founder. I just didn't know where to start so I picked a spot. Anyway, I'm happy to be here and I am meeting some nice folks and isn't that what it's all about, connecting? Well, have a nice day and again thank you for welcoming me so kindly as have all welcomed me well and kindly. Yours in the Blue Resistance.

141. You are correct!

Shirtless Biden Washes Trans Am In White House Driveway - The Onion, 5/5/2009


Vice President Biden ditched a day of presiding over the Senate to "give the twin cannons some sun."

WASHINGTON—Taking advantage of the warm spring weather Monday, Vice President Joe Biden parked his 1981 Trans Am in the White House driveway, removed his undershirt, and spent a leisurely afternoon washing the muscle car and drinking beer.

"This baby just needs a little scrub down," said Biden, addressing a tour group as he tucked the sweat-covered top into the belt loop of his cutoff jean shorts. "Gotta get her looking good so I can impress the chicks when I'm cruising down Pennsylvania [Avenue]."

White House aides said that Biden pulled into the driveway shortly before noon, the chorus of Night Ranger's (You Can Still) Rock In America blaring from his car's stereo. According to witnesses, Biden spent several minutes maneuvering the Trans Am into the perfect spot, and was observed drumming his fingers on the steering wheel until the song came to a close.

The shirtless 66-year-old then entered the executive residence and greeted employees with a round of high fives and a variety of nicknames.

117. Well done, I really like it. The determination shown in

the facial expression, the dignified stance and wonderful American flag with movement behind all convey 'leader.'

A harmonious composition, with color and technical rendering that tie together in a quality representation of Joe Biden.

Professionally done, modern but with a traditional feel, I like it more each time I look at it, bravo!

First rate, you should be very proud of this one.

Thanks for this online community btw. I feel less out of the social media loop now.

When people babble on about rubbish they saw on FB or Twitter, now I can pompously chime in with "Well I saw on DU..." .

and have the pleasure of knowing that it is not fake news or right wing propaganda in the bargain.....

How nice to see it now, especially after hearing a constant barrage of insults hurlrd at him by Trump. That image reminds us he is strong, knowledgeable, skilled.

Hooray for Joe Biden. Your picture captures so much we know about him.
