Kingston artist Pat Shea’s painting of american president Donald Trump’s inauguration continues to draw interest.
The canvass depicts the inauguration as a coronation.
It’s based on the painting of Napoleon’s coronation.
Shea says while it was hanging in the window at Frameworks at Montreal and Princess streets — it was drawing crowds outside the store.
And now, small crowds have gathered in the store to look at his interpretive piece.
As the tourism season gets into full swing — he says American tourists have started purchasing prints of the painting.
“We asked them why they’re buying the prints and they say well we’re sending them as condolence cards to our families the ones that voted for Trump.”
