The man paints

It appears, through sources at the Smoking Gun, that the hacker who goes by the name Guccifer has rummaged, proverbially, through the George W. Bush’s personal files, airing a bunch of information nobody needs to know, save for three interesting, counter-intuitive items. 

The former U.S. President, whose polarizing legacy does not need further unpacking here, has a sense of the sublime. He paints.

Guccifer’s hack uncovered two Bush-wrought self-portraits that he sent to his sister Dorothy. Both paintings, unfinished, are of Bush in the bathroom: one of his back while he standing in the shower, and other seems a point of view shot of his feet in the bathtub.

But, before the ex-Pres gets typecast, there is also a picture of him painting a church scene in what looks to be his home gym/solarium (see top image).
