Michelle Obama Painting 0 comments

I was just reading about the exhibit by artist Peyton, who has done portraits of people such as Curt Cobain. She has a show at a gallery in New York City and her portrait of Michelle Obama was just sold to an undisclosed buyer. There were quite a few articles, but I had a hard time tracking down an image of the actual painting. When I did, I noticed that it is going to be displayed in the Twin Cities before long.
