So the Stealth Artist has been at it again. Our dear friend Fred spent some time as the Interim President of Redeemer University College. During his reign, he was subjected to a number of jabs and barbs regarding his elevated status from some of us that bordered on mockerage. This all he took in stride.
When I discovered that he never did sit for a presidential portrait I thought it was something that had to be rectified. So the Artist Anita went into stealth mode once again. This time I tackled a mixed medium art portrait and the results were…well…plaid.
Fred found a place next to the other presidential portraits where he spent countless hours watching the goings-on that were going on.
This is the blurb which was displayed next to the art.
Stealth Art by Artist Anita Installment 5 in a 3 part series Redeemer University College has a long history of highlighting emerging artists and is overjoyed, if not a little confused, to present this mixed medium art piece entitled: Interimial Presidential Portraiture Fred & his Presidential Robe Fred Verwoerd’s humbleness prevented him from sitting for an official portrait during his time as Interim President of Redeemer University College but this local artist feels that Fred’s place in history should be noted, yea verily, it should be celebrated.
After hanging in the hallowed halls of learning for a good deal of time. Fred was removed today. All art has its time and Fred’s place in the limelight was over.
Thank goodness Fred is good at forgiving.
