G.W. Bush Artwork

The George W. Bush Presidential Center is selling an ornament that features 43s 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.

(WATCH: George W. Bush paints Jay Leno's portrait)

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. Im flattered. I hope my painting meets expectations.

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

During the 3 1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks. We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

It's worth noting, that during almost the exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.

Some pretty good stuff.

Doubt he'd make a living at it but if he sells them for veteran's charities like he has, they will hopefully draw very high bids.

A couple of other great artistes usually remembered for other things:

Winston Churchill

Adolph Hitler

Ponder that.

Winston Churchill was also the author of some truly amazing books to include The History of the English Speaking Peoples. Recommended reading to understand where we came from and how we got here.

I bought three of the ornaments, keeping one and giving the other two to my brothers.

My dad was one for finding different type of gifts and would give one to each of us "kids" and since this is the first Christmas without him or my mom, when I saw these I thought "hey, I'll do a shout-out-to-dad gift".
