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.
