Still recovering

I'm still in the process of recovering from the Heaven & Earth art show, and appreciate everybody's patience with the photographs--they're out there, I'm just collecting them from several sources so it will be a while before I have a nice set to show.

You might also have noticed that I've been slower to create and show new paintings, but be assured that they're coming. Soon, I'll also have new Little Beauties Art Cards as well as Everyday Beauty items ready!

In the meantime, I've been swooning over a couple of viewings of the movie, The Fall, by Tarsem Singh. It's gotten mixed reviews, much like The Fountain, but again what draws me to this film (and what I think is the source for the negative criticism) is that this is poetry, not prose. It is not superficial, vain, or empty to present beautiful images--moving or still--that haunt emotionally without the crutch of a narrative or plot.

If you see The Fall, see it for what it is, not for what you (or the critics) wished it would be. See it if you've ever had a truly broken heart, and if that broken heart bled.
