Neda inspiration - inverted, cut, pasted - no glue here....some there. A lovely image by a gifted artist that can be clicked and enlarged. Somehow slivers of Andrea's fireworks crept in too, here.
Lately I work on images very quickly - no time and it is quite bothersome. I do think quality is suffering and see no end in sight....work, family, lawncare.
Marie and I watched a most beautifully lit and photographed movie last night on DVD - "Girl With a Pearl Earring." Period piece - impeccable settings and costumes. But what was amazing was the lighting and also the pure love of paint and pigment....how artists ground and created made their oil paints before there were tube colors. Chemistry.
"You wouldn't think a movie could look like a Vermeer painting, but Girl with a Pearl Earring is filmed with an amazing range of luminous glows that evoke the Dutch artist's masterworks." Amazon.
The cinematography is much better than the storyline, but I can live it that, here.
