by David Lloyd Glover

First Lady Michelle Obama


A most influential First Lady. In this portrait, I sought out the colors that I think evoke her character and personality. Strong solid primary colors in a bold contrasting palette. This was painted as a companion piece to the Barack Obama Presidential portrait also featured on this site. These images have been shown at the White House last month. Print on demand feature will be available in a few days.

The original work is currently for sale. At the present time, originals are not offered for sale through the Fine Art America secure checkout system. Please contact the artist directly to inquire about purchasing this original by clicking on the picture link below.

Let there be light and DAVID LLOYD GLOVER will find it. A prolific painter, David uses the difficult medium of water-colour and deftly achieves a multi-layered emotional -- and for some, transcendental experience. White light, if you will, becomes the portrait path of self- exploration and fulfilment and the illumination of truth and echoes of eternity are shared by both artist and audience.

Glover's paintings are on 300lb, T.H. Saunders, Waterford-series cold pressed paper. Always, a detailed under drawing is executed in 2B pencil which is a discipline learned from Illustrating. He uses Winsor & Newton transparent water-colours and Winsor & Newton brushes as he believes that superior quality materials is so important when marketing your work through top level fine art galleries.

Glover creates a pure blend of subtle and bold. He extends an invitation that welcomes and bids safe adventure, far beyond the subject shown. One is led, gently, through a journey of the infinite. Boundaries are only set here by the beholder -- for in all of Glover's work, we see and feel the beginning, the middle and the end of the moment portrayed. And still there is always beginning Born in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1949, David showed an innate and singular gift for drawing and painting. While still in elementary school, he was chosen to study with artists at the Vancouver School of Fine Arts but chose to pursue a position as illustrator for the Victoria Times. His talent displayed a wide variety of styles and treatments. Promoted quickly to editorial cartoonist, David became the youngest political satirist in the country.
