Russell Brand, my new hero
Why I may have just become a fan of Russell Brand
I don't claim to ever have been a fan of Russell Brand, in fact I can't say I have ever seen anything he has done on Television that has begun to make a fan of me. Until today.
There is a clear difference between how actors are in a role and how they are in real life. Russell Brand has demonstrated this so clearly in this interview with Jeremy Paxman. In the first place I dig the underdog. So here we have Paxman who is all about the establishment and everything "Proper". Juxtaposed with a guy who is from the "other side of the tracks". A former drug addict, rocker and so called reprobate. Listen long enough, as I did and you see how this wrong side of the tracks guy takes down and undresses Paxman on camera in front of the world.
I say, whatever else you stand for Mr Brand I may have issues with but on this interview, wow, you're my new hero buddy!
Do I hear any here here's?
Comment on this if you will.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
