Inspiration Everywhere

Purple Roof, 2007, Oil on Panel, 8x10

I have a full day of painting in front of me today, and I have already frittered away a few hours. So this will be a short post. Probably.

I saw a movie on Sunday that has really stayed with me. I love when that happens. Doug and I rented The Painted Veil, starring Edward Norton and Naomi Watts, on Saturday, but we both fell asleep within about 15 minutes. He went out of town on Sunday, so I kept it and watched it on Sunday night. It was amazing! I wish I could have seen it on the big screen as the landscape of China looked so beautiful. I woke up several times Sunday night thinking about the story, the characters, their relationship and the ending. It was a very quiet movie and I saw positive reviews for it when it was released, but it never did come to our stupid theater that is only showing Spiderman these days.

I have to add here, that I may possibly be in love with Edward Norton. He is a bit younger than I am and he probably wouldn't want to live on a farm, but a girl can dream, right? Heh. I loved him in The Illusionist, and well, in pretty much everything I have seen him in.

Ok, I am off to the studio.

Just watched the trailer for "The Painted Veil"....looks fabulous. I too, love Ed Norton. Wonder why I never heard of this movie???

Ahh, fellow Ed lover! I didn't hear much about it either when it was released, just a few reviews. It probably came out along with a big movie and got buried.
