Drawing by Kansas City, KS based artist Leslie Brown
We've been eagerly anticipating Leslie Brown's second drawing of the First Lady, inspired by a 2007 Annie Leibovitz photograph of Mrs. O. The image, both here and in the original form, is one of the most stunning of the First Lady we've ever seen. We love Mr. Brown's masterful shading, and the striking silhouette and graceful slope of Mrs. O's neck and shoulders that he has so perfectly captured. Several weeks ago we featured Mr. Brown's first drawing of Mrs. O. To see that work, and learn more about the talented artist (also a language arts teacher in Olathe, KS), click here.
