Since it's self-aggrandizement-in-the-news day here at Chicagoland, I thought I'd note that the GWB presidential portrait has been completed, and it is perfect. The line of sight goes down from the viewer to the president, who looks about 5'5'' in an uncomfortable semi-crouch with a needy expression (compare to Grover Cleveland, who's laid-back yet with an air of genial gravitas). He's also the first president to pose for his official portrait in business casual; JFK at least wore a white shirt.
