Odessa Tx. (Local 2 / Fox 24) -
A crowd of more than 50 people waiting to see the unveiling of our 45th President Donald J. Trump portrait at the John Ben Sheppard Public Leadership Institute. 

Robert Brescia hosted the event and said he is happy to have the portraits completed. 

"We think that we are one of the few if not the only Presidential archives outside of Washington D.C. that has a complete collection of oil portraits," said Brescia.  

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick spoke at the event and wanted to emphasize Wednesday's event especially for the presidential family. 

"It was a pretty exciting day for the Trump family and for Odessa and for Midland," said Patrick. 

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick spoke with State Representative Brooks Landgraf as they introduced the portrait. 

"To have an unveiling like this for President Trump is a pretty big deal," said Landgraf. "To have Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick here in Odessa also makes it an even more special moment."

But, the magic behind the paintbrush goes to Bo Tan.

"He took some English-British pigment to get this portrait done," said Brescia. "Because he wanted the colors to be very vivid." 

Tan is an award-winning artist who has done many paintings here in Texas. 

"I like the American culture and the people," said Tan. "So you enjoy my artwork and I appreciate it." 

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said you do not want to miss the newly completed collection because it is history. 

"It is a collection of all of the Presidents, great memorabilia," said Patrick.  "It is a great exhibit to come and see." 

For anyone who is interested in viewing this completed collection you can visit the library during their normal business hours.
