|Q. By a C grade high school student?|
A new artist is born! It's not George W. Bush former leader of the free world any more - it's George W. Brush budding artist. He claims that he practises every day and has employed an art tutor to improve his skills. Today, George W. Brush launches his first exhibition. He claims to be inspired by his great hero - Winston Churchill who also dabbled in painting. Furthermore, Brush claims that his intimate relationship with a wide spectrum of world leaders guides his "artistry". He was uniquely placed to read the characters of these important people.
I don't mean to be peevish but it seems to me that Brush is as good at art as he was at leading America. Who can forget the 2001 image of Brush in a school room when an aide whispered in his ear that there had been a terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre. He looked lost, out of his depth, hopeless. And it is the same with his artwork as the accompanying images testify. We can admire his interest in art and his perseverance but the results would have been better - secreted like mythical weapons of mass destruction in his sprawling Texas ranch.
