Went to the California State Capitol today. Jerry Brown, current governor, and former governor, has his portrait up on the third floor of the building right next to Ronald Reagan’s and a few others. The governors pick their own artists. Ronald’s and the others are typical, conventional portraits. Jerry’s is straight crazy. He chose an expressionist? artist friend from the L.A. area. It’s half-finished looking and Jerry’s expression is frozen somewhere between sadness and surprise. But you have to love the originality. Just became a dude on my list of whose biographies I want to/need to read. Holla.
