Hacker Releases What May Be Two New George W. Bush Paintings

A pair of paintings that a hacker says were done by former President George W. Bush were published Tuesday by Gawker.

One depicts two dogs resting in the grass, while the other shows a cat lazing about. The paintings were obtained by the hacker Guccifer, who released Bush family emails in February that revealed the former president’s art work. Guccifer released six more Bush paintings to Gawker in March.

Bush has said that painting has changed his life. At the dedication of Bush’s presidential library in April, former President Bill Clinton couldn’t resist ribbing his successor over his newfound hobby, particularly the paintings that appeared to depict Bush in the bathroom.
