Obama’s muddy palette captures a dark heart.

This TIME Tweet caught my eye yesterday.

Obamian portrait artist, Kehinde Wiley, granted the magazine the honor of an interview in which he detailed the ordeal of capturing the essence of the former President on canvas.

The Tweet image, presumably Wiley’s paint palette, contains all the colors necessary to laying down Obama to easel.  They seem to be included in one muddy smudge of shit.

Only thing I can’t determine…is this to capture Obama’s skin or his heart?
