Obama painting joins hall

By Charles Ashby

Though it was scheduled weeks ago, the timing was perfect for some that President Barack Obama's portrait was officially hung in the Hall of Presidents in the third-floor rotunda of the Colorado Capitol today, given yesterday's announcement by Obama that U.S. forces found and killed terrorist Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.

The portrait was painted by Colorado Springs artist Sara Boardman. It was done in the style of Massachusettes artist Lawrence Williams, who painted the portraits of all the other presidents in the hall. Williams died in 2003.
