Bill Richardson, Governor of New Mexico, stands next to President Barack Obama. Both men are looking downward but smiling. The digital painting is a creative depiction of an AP photograph by Alex Brandon. Text below the image states, "Richardson gives endorsement to Obama." Included on top of the photo depiction are several loosely digitally painted colorful geometric shapes, an orange square, a green square, a pink rectangle and miscellaneous other loose yellow, red and turquoise marks. In the white margin at the bottom of the image of the men is a small inset image that depicts a highway overpass, a billboard and a car on the road with two dialogue bubbles.
This predominately black and white work consists of three main images, some text and several colorful marks moving across the face of the artwork. The larger text states, "Bush and Iraq's leader have video conference."
