... in the form of a Christmas ornament.

The George W. Bush Presidential Library is selling an ornament featuring former president George W. Bush's painting of a cardinal. The ornament can be purchased for $29.98.

Bush has taken up painting after exiting office. He likes to paint animals — dogs, especially — but has also ventured into some risque territory, doing self-portraits of himself in the bathtub and shower that were revealed after a hacker released family e-mails.
