“I do take painting seriously. It’s changed my life.”

What all started with painting a few self portraits in the bathtub has blossomed into a full-blown art career for former President George W. Bush. People reports that W. will exhibit two dozen (!) paintings this spring at his presidential library and museum in Dallas. But don’t expect a few splash-y time doodles.

Featuring work that has never before been exhibited, “The Art of Leadership: A President’s Personal Diplomacy,” explores “the relationships that President George W. Bush forged with world leaders to shape international policy and advance American interests abroad.”
