The ornament, selling for $29.98, is an unsigned Bush painting
of a cardinal on a tree branch in a metal frame, with a ribbon
attached so it can be hung.
Bush has taken up painting in his retirement, producing still
lifes, self portraits and images of animals. His wife, Laura,
thought the painting of the cardinal could be used to celebrate
the holiday season.
"Laura liked the bright red of the cardinal and the greens of
the foliage, and chose my painting, for which I am grateful, to
become the Christmas card and the ornament," Bush said in a
video for the presidential center.
Proceeds from sales go back into the center, which opened this
year, and to charities it supports.
