DALLAS (AP) – Former President George W. Bush has used his newly publicized love of painting to create a bird image for a 2013 commemorative Christmas ornament.

Bush, who lives in Dallas, appeared on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week to show his art and talk about how much he enjoys painting.

The framed metal ornament features what appears to be the bright red image of a cardinal sitting on a branch.

The item lists for $29.98 on the website of the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas. The art is described as an “untitled work.”

The holiday ornament can be purchased with red or green packaging.
