Budding portrait artist George W. Bush gets his own exhibit


After a hacker leaked the Bush family's private emails in February 2013, George W. Bush's deepest secret was revealed — that he's a pretty adequate oil painter.

Along with portraits of dogs, sunsets, landscapes, and homes, Bush also proved to have a certain talent in capturing the thoughtfully painted selfie.

And if you're tired of viewing such detailed work in Twitter thumbnails, you're in luck! The 43rd president will show a collection of his paintings in early April at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas. According to the Associated Press, the exhibit titled "The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy," will feature more than two dozen portraits that have never before been exhibited.
