George W. Bush's artwork up for sale

This Christmas, for $29.98, you can trim your tree with some of former President George W. Bush’s artwork.

The George W. Bush Presidential Center is selling an ornament that features 43’s own painting of a cardinal perched on a branch.

Bush painted the bird as a gift for former Ambassador Warren Tichenor, and his wife decided it looked Christmas-y.

“Laura liked the bright red on the cardinal and the green of the foliage and chose my painting, for which I am grateful, for the Christmas card and the ornament,” the former president says in a video posted online. “I’m flattered. I hope my painting meets expectations.”

Earlier this week, Bush chatted about his painting hobby on “The Tonight Show.”

“I do take painting seriously,” he said. “It’s changed my life.”

Bush said he takes lessons once a week and once told his teacher, “There's a Rembrandt trapped in this body. Your job is to find it."
