A delayed but deserved well done! to Simmie Knox, a Washington area artist who was chosen to deliver the official Clinton portrait.

Interesting to note that none of the area newspapers art critics has written anything about Knox, although regular staff writers have written several pieces and even the mighty New York Times.

Yet our area's otherwise vociferous art critics remain silent... perhaps because Knox is an area artist? I wonder if the portrait artist was from New York, or LA?

Congrats Simmie - well deserved!
