George W. Bush’s brother Jeb critiques the former president’s painting

Landscapes, dogs, and the classic fruit-in-a-bowl are among a list of newly released paintings, created by former President George W. Bush. The paintings were taken from the Bush family's hacked email accounts.

The Bush's released a painting of the family dog Barney, and as it turns out the former first dog is not the only four-legged muse for the former president.

"We have two cats, Michael and Angelo, he really loves to paint dogs, too," says brother Jeb Bush. "He's gotten better, he's really actually pretty good at it."

The former Florida governor adds his brother is "the most focused, disciplined guy."

"Everything he sets his mind to he does, he wants to be good at. And he's actually become a pretty good painter. I'll just admit that this was a surprise to me when I found this out about it a year ago. And he's doing it with a vengeance," said Jeb Bush. "So if you've got a dog, I'm sure based on your past relationship, he would like to paint it."
