I would pay to see a group exhibit of his paintings along with Hitler's and John Wayne Gacy's.
I actually like them. They have a primitive Clementine Hunter/Grandma Moses vibe to them. I don't know if that effect is intentional or a function of his limits as a painter, but they really do have a naive charm.
No matter what, though: he's a better artist than he was a president.
BTW, I'm a professional contemporary artist. Shameless self promotion: check out my web site! Better yet: buy a painting!!! :)
The only way these paintings would be acceptable is if they were done from the inside of a cell. This man is a war criminal and he should be ashamed as both a Christian and human to spend his days in leisure as millions of lives lay ruined in the wake of his greed.
If this is therapeutic then W needs to start releasing those dark evil images in his head. It should start with a painting of a demonic, towering Dick Cheney--portrayed in a bloodied nun's outfit disguise, holding W's testes in one hand, and an overheated globe in the other. Countries already destroyed should be painted in bright Neocon pink.
I looked up the term "idiot savant" in the dictionary and there was a painting of George W next to the meaning.
I wish he'd have started a very successful career with this long ago.
I like the amalgamation of a zebra, dalmatian and donkey. At least I think that's what it is.
The shit is pretty good primitive work.
I am completely convinced that Cheney was the evil overlord of the 8 year administration and GWB was almost a special needs adult easily controlled and wishing he could be at his "ranch" instead of the Oval Office.
Painting? A former cheerleading president now paints instead of doing leccture tours worldwide? How gay's that?
Hate that man and totally believe that someone else painted those things and he just slapped his name on it. That lazy drunk bum.
They're very interesting primitives. I wonder when he will paint the fall of St. Olaf.
