George Bush Ornament

Move over Banksy, there’s a new popular artist in town — former President George W. Bush! The George W. Bush Presidential Center is selling a Christmas ornament featuring Bush’s original painting of a cardinal. Priced at $29.98, the ornament serves as the first time a print of former President Bush’s artwork has been available to the public.

This piece features a red cardinal sitting on a branch surrounded by green foliage. But let the artist himself describe his work — watch the “artist behind the 2013 Bush Center ornament” talk about his craft in the video below:
