George W. Bush’s Paintings of Veterans Reveal Talent and Passion
George W. Bush, our 43rd president, has taken a shine to, or should I say, a passion for painting! It just goes to show you never know what direction life will take you in. Politics and art…does it mix?
I was in college during the GWB years taking painting classes, which inspired me to write this post. Plus, it is a great topic for the occasion of Memorial Day and remembering those who served.
Apparently, GWB had another budding desire post-presidency. And it has all culminated into a series of works featuring a varied collection of veterans who served during the Iraq War. The series of portraits is all here in a book you will love to have gracing your coffee table.
You can check out the book with the collection of all his work right here. This makes a great gift for the art lover you know that you may be seeking just the “right” thing for!
Happy Memorial Day to all of you! Fire up that grill and have some BBQ and don’t forget to celebrate with some “arting” if you find the time!
And if you’re looking to get some patriotic art on over the weekend…I encourage you to check out my American Flag wall art post for some inspiration.
