George W. Bush Has Been Painting Portraits of Wounded Warriors He’s Gotten to Spend Time With
Over the past several months, I've painted the portraits of 98 wounded warriors I've gotten to know - remarkable men and women who were injured carrying out my orders. I think about them on #VeteransDay and every day. Their paintings and stories will be featured in PORTRAITS OF COURAGE - a book and special exhibit - next spring, and I am donating all my proceeds to @thebushcenter and our Military Service Initiative's work to honor and support them.

After leaving the White House, George W. Bush began to invest more and more time into his love for painting.
In the past several months Bush has painted the portraits of 98 wounded warriors who he has gotten to know and spend time with. These stories and portraits are about to be unveiled in an exhibit and book in the spring of this year.
#42 plans to donate the proceeds to the George W. Bush Presidential Center and the Military Service Initiative. You can find out more about purchasing his book at www.georgewbushbooks.com.
It's a very touching project from a President who has seen so many service men and women go off to defend our country. Perhaps in a way, his passion for art also helps him deal with the weight of such hard decisions like Jennifer mentions...
