Bush has taken up a new hobby: painting! This time, his subjects are his former peers. W painted world leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and his former British counterpart Tony Blair. He also offered his opinion on the men behind the portraits, saying, "Vladimir is a person who in many ways views the United States as an enemy. I felt he saw the world as either the US benefits and Russia loses or vice versa." And he got a little personal: "As you know, our dear dog Barney, who had a special place in my heart — Putin dissed him and said, 'You call it a dog?'" But the leader most dear to Bush's heart?
