Washington, Mar 9: The teacher who taught former President George W. Bush how to paint has praised his budding skills, saying that he’d go down in history as a ‘great artist’.
Bonnie Flood, the artist from Cumming, Georgia, told Fox 5 in Atlanta that ‘Bush will be remembered as a great artist in history books because of his passion for painting’.
According to Politico, Flood spent a month in Boca Grande, Florida, teaching Bush how to mix paints and use proper brush strokes.
Bush, who started off painting mostly dogs, rapidly gained experience and learned to make landscapes. He even posts some of his work on his Facebook account.
The artist said that, while she was not intimidated by teaching a former president, she was torn on what to call him.
She finally settled on ’43′, which is how Bush signs his paintings, homage to him being the 43rd president, the report added. (ANI)
