Dubya Re. Recently Discovered Painting Talent: 'Of Course Some People are Surprised I Can Even Read'
Reaganite Republican ^ | 25 April 2013 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 04/25/2013 9:21:56 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican

I'm no art sophisticate or anything, but I know what I like. And as much as I didn't like George W Bush's spending and government expansion, I DO like his work in watercolors- the guy is good-

But if you're surprised, so's Dubya... he had no idea he could paint: seems about a year ago he did some 'doodling' to explain something to the Bush daughters at the ranch one day, and and lo-and-behold a family friend in the art business told him he may have a hidden talent.

Bush had read a book by Winston Churchill on amateur painting, and took the lessons in it to heart: now just a few months later, a few pieces of his were submitted to the Dallas Morning News and published in the ramp-up to the Bush Library opening today... color me impressed!

More at the Dallas Morning News...

GWB has a great sense of humor. A chip off of his mom’s block in that regard.

We may haves with some of his policies, but I felt he was trying to do right FOR the country rather than TO the country

I especially like his painting of Barney, the son he never had. :)

Loved the pics online of Barney after he died not too long ago. I’d buy a print of that painting IF it were made available.

Looks like Van Gogh style, paintings. All that’s missing are women with crazy boob and eye placement.
