Lopsided Seal fitting tribute to Daugaard

As a person who has visited hundreds of museums and looked at thousands of portraits, it only took me about two seconds this morning while looking at this painting, “The seal is inaccurate and lopsided.” Sure enough, as my diagram shows, it’s off, and way off.

Some might argue that this is an ‘artist’s perspective’. I guess that is well and good if you are Matisse or Piscasso, but if you are a portrait artist, the little things count. Squares and circles need to be accurate and within perspective. Never mind that the artist shaved about 30 years off of Denny’s face.

Maybe he can ask for a discount, or if it is an oil painting, there is probably still time to ‘tweak it’ you know, like the AG did with Benda’s death report.

I found it fascinating that his portrait is already done. Normally, it is completed after their tenure. In fact, after Janklow’s first regnum, he refused to sit for such a painting, but that’s probably because he planned to return and didn’t think the paint had dried yet on his reign of terror.

I get a kick out of Noem’s official inaugural picture with her husband too. It looks like Brian is the governor-elect and Kristi is merely a wife in hiding with her ‘Knots Landing’ hat…

I thought the hat was more Meghan Markle like. Is Bryan the ‘Prince’ of SD? Puke.

Does the first man get to decorate the governors mansion and pick the China?

I think the Noems plan to turn the Governor’s Mansion into a bed and breakfast, since they don’t plan to use it.
….And Democratic patrons will be have to pay a surcharge too…

And the House of Lords Legislature will most likely rename the Mansion, Castlewood Palace, to afford confusion to the masses about the Royals whereabouts; and Queen Kristi and Prince Bryan will continue the melodrama found in the ‘Son of Brookings’ by Bill Bard, with cameo appearances by Lord Mickelson and Rex Rolfing most likely…

Here’s a teaser:

“….Now that thee is the Queen, must I still dispose the waste on ‘Trash Day?’ Says the third in line…..”

They had to offset it to squeeze that “under god” out onto his shoulder.
