Bush Portrait Unveiled
The NY Times Reoprted today that "President Bush watched his portrait unveiled today in the state Capitol where he served six years as governor. ...The portrait, by Fort Worth artist Scott Gentling, will hang next to that of the Democratic governor whom Bush defeated in 1994, Ann Richards...``I just hope Governor Richards doesn't mind being my neighbor for an eternity,' Bush joked. Tears welled in his eyes at one point.The president and first lady Laura Bush interrupted their ranch holiday and flew by helicopter to Austin for the unveiling of the gubernatorial portrait...The $10,000 portrait, done in a traditional style with Bush in a business suit, was given a prominent first-floor spot among the Texas Capitol's collection of 46 former governors.Bush sat for the portrait during a previous trip to his central Texas ranch, where he and Mrs. Bush have been vacationing since Dec. 26...Mrs. Bush lifted the black velvet shroud and revealed her husband's likeness to applause from the small crowd. A few tears spilled from the president's eyes and he shrugged sheepishly. Against a smoke gray background, the painted Bush perches -- with a casual slouch to his shoulders -- on the corner of a desk.Bush thanked the artist for ``taking time to try to figure me out.'``Looks like you did me justice,' he told Gentling.The first lady said the portrait ``shows the president with his warmth and his resolve. This is the way I've always seen him and as America and the world are coming to know him.' Gov. Rick Perry, who succeeded Bush, said the portrait would be a reminder of ``a man who governed with civility, passion and tremendous character.'``Thank you for taking time out of your day to come and witness my hanging,' Bush joked with the audience. ``Fortunately, it's my portrait.'
