THE FORMER US president has some time on his hands these days and has decided to dapple in a bit of painting.

However, he is not just doing landscapes, no, he has decided to paint some of the people he met while on the job, like Berlusconi, Blair and Putin.

The 67-year-old is taking his work very seriously and unveiled an exhibition of his work on Friday at his presidential library in Dallas.

The exhibition is entitled: “The Art of Leadership: A President’s Personal Diplomacy.”

What do you think, should he give up the day job just yet? Take a look at some of his other works of art:
