In early 2014, the international news media outlets’ headlines exploded with news connecting a former U.S. President to fine art classes. Many people were fascinated with the news and we don’t blame them. After all, who would have imaged that the man who once held the fate of the free world in his hands would now be holding a paint brush and displaying his work on art pedestals? Ummm….us, that’s who!
We know how attractive fine art classes and art pedestals can be to so many different people. That’s because we produce some of the best, museum quality art pedestals in the world. Plus, we know that through the years, there have been other world leaders who’ve taken up a palette a time or two. Among them were Jimmy Carter, Winston Churchill, Vladmir Putin and Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Bush apparently loves to create portrait paintings. Interestingly enough, Eisenhower favored portraits for a time too. However, he also seemed to enjoy painting landscapes as did Churchill. Carter, on the other hand, has produced paintings of animals, landscapes and people. And Putin’s work, thus far, has been quite contemporary.
World leaders apparently like to do more than just paint and display their work on art pedestals in their off time too. How do we know that? Well, there’s even been an entire book dedicated to former U.S. President’s pencil sketches and random doodles. It contains the impromptu artwork of men like Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. So as you can see, we weren’t really surprised to learn that G.W. Bush decided to dabble in the arts as well.
