People are surprised I can read, says George Bush

Washington, Apr. 16 (ANI): Former President George W. Bush, whose paintings are confounding his critics, has said that some people are surprised that he can even read.

The 66-year-old politician, who said that he takes “great delight in bursting stereotypes,” started painting about a year ago, when his wife’s pal told him that he had some talent, Politico reported.

Bush was initially skeptical, but came around to the hobby after reading ‘Painting as a Pastime,’ written by his hero Winston Churchill.

He now takes lessons once a week and paints mostly pets, landscapes and still life. (ANI)
