Washington: Former President George W. Bush, whose paintings are confounding his critics, has said that some people are surprised that he can even read.

The 66-year-old politician, who said that he takes "great delight in bursting stereotypes," started painting about a year ago, when his wife`s pal told him that he had some talent, Politico reported.

Bush was initially skeptical, but came around to the hobby after reading `Painting as a Pastime,` written by his hero Winston Churchill.

He now takes lessons once a week and paints mostly pets, landscapes and still life.
