Clinton Painting

January 21, 2006 - Posted at 9:30 p.m. CST

BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) _ A falling tree damaged the Pennsylvania
studio where portrait artist J- Nelson Shanks is working on a
portrait of former President Bill Clinton. None of the paintings
were damaged.

The artwork was moved before rain fell through holes in the
damaged roof. The damage was reported Saturday by the Bucks County
Courier Times, citing Shanks' house staff and friends.

The studio, located in a carriage house on Shanks' 19th century
estate, was covered with blue tarp while chunks from the fallen
tree were scattered about the yard.

Shanks has painted world figures including Princess Diana,
Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II.

The Clinton portrait was commissioned for the Smithsonian's
National Portrait Gallery. The portrait is scheduled to be unveiled
later this year.

Shanks' estate is located on the Delaware River, just north of
Philadelphia.
