Mr.Bean and Whistler's Mother

This is quite possibly the most recognized face in the world.

I had thought of using this video clip, "Bean: The Ulimate Disaster Movie" to introduce the painting session I will be having this fall. This, I am sure, will become the source of many a blog posting to follow.

I won't tell you about the You Tube video clip. I will let you see it for yourself. Its almost six minutes long, and it is a delightful art story.

Comedy in itself is an artform, and this man is a giant in the world of humour.
