The American presidential office is one of great power and prestige. It's an incredibly stressful position, but there's always a little down time for presidential hobbies, too. Even America's leaders can find time in their busy schedules to produce a few doodles every now and then. 

While George W. Bush's paintings are some of the most famous examples of presidential art, they're far from the only ones. Plenty of presidents have picked up a pen or paintbrush purely for artistic purposes while they were in office, creating a rich tapestry of artwork spanning centuries of US history.
