Bush on painting: 'I see colors differently'

(CNN) – Former President George W. Bush has become known for his painting skills, an unexpected hobby the 43rd president has picked up in his post-White House life.

"I relax. I see colors differently. I am, I guess, tapping a part of the brain that, you know, certainly never used when I was a teenager. And I get the satisfaction out of completing a project. And I paint people's pets. And I love to give them their pet as a gift," he told CNN's John King.

Clinton's bathroom humor about Bush paintings

(CNN) - President Bill Clinton delivered a few friendly jokes during his remarks at the George W. Bush Presidential Ceremony dedication ceremony in Dallas, with one of them poking fun at his successor's new hobby of painting.

"I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm going to anyway. Your mother showed me some of your landscapes and animal paintings, and I thought they were great. Really great. And I seriously considered calling you and asking you to do a portrait of me–until I saw the results of your sister's hacked e-mails," Clinton said. "Those bathroom sketches were wonderful, but at my age, I think I should keep my suit."
