Greatest Living President is Also Fantastic Painter

The illegal hack of Bush family email accounts had an unanticipated consequence, the Smoking Gun reports:

The hacker also intercepted photos that George W. Bush e-mailed two months ago to his sister showing paintings that he was working on, including self-portraits of him showering and in a bathtub. Another image shows the former president painting at the family’s Maine retreat (his subject is St. Ann’s Episcopal Church, a historic seaside chapel down the road from the sprawling Kennebunkport compound).

The paintings demonstrate a command of line and color that is rarely seen in the modern-day “art” world. Former President George W. Bush appears to be influenced by such painters as Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet. The portraits also clearly capture the personality of their subject.

    Portraits of himself bathing? I dont know about you but I find this kind of creepy.Unless pyschologicly 43 is trying to wash away the stains of his last two years in office.I’d love to hear Shifras take on this.For a man that only allowed suits and ties in the Oval Office, he’s making up for it now baring almost all.He is talented though and I’m sure it was supposed to be for Laura’s eyes only.
