Breakfast at Tiffany’s

leave a comment »

A simple black backround with a simple white outline of actress Audrey Hepburn as in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s make a simply sensational piece. It needs no further explanation then what you can see for yourself. A beautiful painting of a beautiful woman.

Nightmare in the clouds

leave a comment »

“Nightmare in the clouds” is extremely dramatic and full of  intensity. A young girl stuck in a nightmare and her only protection, a small red umbrella is torn from her hands. All of the dark clouds circle a fair girl dressed in white her hair being blown violently in front of her contrast and make the focal point, the young girl, stand out. This painting reflect the artists own fear of darkness and large storms.

Silhouettes and Sunsets

leave a comment »

Silhouettes and Sunsets is a simple and romantic piece. Easy to understand and easy to appreciate. A cute couple (though you can’t sere their faces) kissing at sunset on the beach. The bright colors in the back hot colors in the sky and cool in the water come together in a brillant sunset behind plain black silhouettes make this painting simply sensational.

Fireflies

leave a comment »

The painting entitled Fireflies by Helen depicts a dear childhood memory of catching fireflies on a warm summer night. and then keeping them in a jar through the night for light. An almost comic color scheme and a dark back round with layers and layers of paint create a dramatic an childhood piece to cherish.

Dancing with myself

In the painting “Dancing with Myself” there is a girl under a spotlight shrouded in darkness dancing with herself. Her green dress and red hair contrast fit into the color scheme really pop. The painting quotes and drew inspiration from the song “Dancing with myself” by Billy Idol.

Paint in the Wind

leave a comment »

In Paint in the Wind by Helen there is a great contrast between the black and the white gives the piece a dramatic flare. It was made as a companion piece with “Because of You” also by Helen. In this the wind coming through the door is blowing the heartbroken man away. The title is a play on the song “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas.

Because of you

leave a comment »

This painting by Helen is titled Because of you. This painting quotes the song because of you by Kelly Clarkson and Rebeca McEntire. The focal point is a girl all alone on a swing. This contrast of popping color in the middle of a white canvas is truly stunning.

Six Impossible things

leave a comment »

This painting is titled Six Impossible things by Helen.

The focal point being a girl laying in the grass imaging and believing in these things. The 6 impossible things depicted in this painting is 1-the cloud and the sun are best friends 2-people can fly 3-the eiffel tower is in Appleton, Indianna 4-cats speak french 5-tiny sailboats sail on blades on grass 6-you didn’t break my heart.

The girls thought, “Sometimed I believe in six impossible things beffore breakfast” is a quote from Louis Carole’s Alice in Wonderland.

On the Oscars

leave a comment »

Now I’m real happy for Christoph Waltz in winning the “Best Supporting Actor” Oscar. He was a Finest Kind Actor and he deserves more awards than will fit in a thieving yankee’s carpet bag. But he did not deserve the “Best Supporting Actor” Oscar. He deserved the “Best Actor” Oscar! I mean really. Why the Gosh was Brad Pitt even named the lead man of that film? He didn’t even ACT!!! He just affected an accent for 3 hours! I mean, really, for a film called “Inglourious Basterds” You would THINK that the film might actually be about, I don’t know THE BASTERDS??? If the title actually described the film, it would be called “Germans Talking for Two and A Half Hours.”

I mean, you start off the film with these eight Jewish dudes who are going to go scalp some “Nat-zees” or what have you, right? Tarantino specifically decided the narrative needed eight dudes. IF ANYONE CAN NAME THESE EIGHT SUPPOSEDLY MAIN CHARACTERS, I WILL EAT MY LOWER LIP AND GIVE YOU A MILLION DOLLARS. The only one who gets any sort of background material is some Prussian dude called “Hugo Stiglitz”. He wasn’t even one of the main Jewish dudes! And, by the end of the film, only Brad Pitt and three other dudes are even alive, or important. Why not just have Brad Pitt and the three important guys? Oh, that’s right, because then we couldn’t get red mist when the others all randomly get killed.

And The only one who did any acting in this film was Christoph Waltz! I mean, he could’ve just been Nazi number one, but he made the character really amazing and exciting. From his very first scene, the audience knows this dude has got some hidden depths, and could probably kill them all and they wouldn’t mind very much. The character is working so many angles, you really believe that he could’ve been a *Spoiler* double agent the whole time after he kills Hitler. So you have this character who goes from being “The Jew Hunter” to “Hitler’s Killer”, and he’s doing some cool stuff along the way. *End Spoiler*

Meanwhile, what is Brad Pitt doing this whole time? He starts off the film beating in the heads of unarmed prisoners of war, and he ends the film stabbing a swastika into the forehead of… an unarmed prisoner of war. Anyways, congratulations to Mr. Waltz again, and I hope he has a long and successful film career, and he never has to settle for walk on roles on German television again!

Oh, and congratulations to Sandra Bullock, for the Best Actress award for her role as “A Decent Human Being”! I know that can be a stretch for Hollywood Actresses, and she pulled it off with aplomb. Congrats!

South Pacific

leave a comment »


I recently saw South Pacific at the Theatre Under The Stars and I was blown away! Every aspect of the show was amazing! I think that it was the best musical I have ever seen! Rod Gilfry who played Emile de Becque was simply sensational! He had an amazing voice, and great range. Carmen Cusack who stared as Nellie Forbush was great and really portrayed and sold the character!
Most people now the timeless story that is South Pacific, many have seen the great movie from 1958 but the movie leaves out some of the original Rogers and Hamerstein’s dialogue and reprises. I personally enjoyed the play much more than the movie!
The set design and technical execution was great! When the time came for a change in scene there were no blackouts and scurrying crew members. Instead a bamboo screen dropped and “Seabees” moved pieces on and off while a new scene carried on in front of the screen.
All in all this was the best musical I’ve ever seen! So go check if it tours in a city near you! This is a musical theatre experience you do not want to miss!
