This piece is entitled "Wet Paint" because that is how I view Barack Obama's presidency... as wet paint. Just as the effects of an artist's work is not realized when the paint is placed on the canvas, but rather when it dries. The wet paint that Obama has painted will not dry for many years as it is still soaking into the canvas of America's mind.
