Jeb Bush says brother taken to painting dogs ‘with a vengeance’

Former President George W. Bush has always been a dog lover.  Seems now he has become a dog painter:

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Friday that his brother, former President George W. Bush, has taken to painting "with a vengeance" as he enjoys retirement.

"He’s actually become a pretty good painter," Bush said during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper. "I’ll just admit that this was a surprise to me when I found this out about a year ago. And he’s doing it with a vengeance."

Earlier this week, six new paintings by the former president were revealed on the gossip site Gawker. They were obtained by the hacker Guccifer, who in February also published two self-portraits that the former president had emailed to friends and family.

Bush told Tapper, a former White House correspondent for ABC News, that he might be able to snag a portrait of his own.

"If you’ve got a dog, I’m sure based on your past relationship, he would like to paint it," Bush said.

In an interview last month with an Atlanta television station, Bush’s art teacher said he had painted at least 50 animals already.

  1. Great work of art. .I like the composition. The lines themselves in the Scotty draw your attention to his life like eye that glistens. There is a quiet energy to the art work that makes you think the Scotty will bark at any second.. Well done
