Here’s a request from the same collector who commissioned the painting of Barbara Bush’s pearls I did a few years ago. This one is an homage to President Bush, who passed away last night. These are the socks he wore to Barbara Bush’s funeral earlier this year. They had books on them, to honor her commitment to literacy. Their love story was very touching, and while we are all sad to see him go, it’s comforting to know they are now reunited.
