Former President George W. Bush started painting after leaving the White House in 2009, and 24 of his paintings are now on display at his presidential library in Dallas.

The exhibit, which features portraits of world leaders, including Vladimir Putin, Tony Blair and the Dalai Lama, is called “The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy."
