No, really. Politico says so.  Apparently mostly dogs and Texas landscapes.

If you want a presidency studies spin, all I’ve got is that Dwight Eisenhower enjoyed painting too, as you can see below. Some of his finished efforts can be viewed here, along with analysis thereof by the British TV art critic (and nun) Sister Wendy Beckett. No word on whether she’ll be writing up W’s work.

Maybe it’s just part of Bush’s attempt to portray himself as another Churchill…

Maybe it’s because he finds oil painting to be challenging and relaxing and an enjoyable way to spend your time. Happy Trails. LGL
