Wall Art at Tucson Cancer Clinic

What sort of art appeals to you?  I’m never sure how to answer a question like that.  There are so many possibilities; they’re everywhere.

What makes a piece like this attractive over, say, a stunning portrait or a brilliant landscape?  And who finds modern art inspiring?  Or is it a visual cacophony?

Are movies considered art?

We rewatched an older movie a couple of nights ago that shows cameos of some of the 1920’s artists and authors in their own settings of the time.  The movie is “Midnight in Paris” and is pretty much just fluff as far as story line goes, but the petite glimpses into the 1920’s and 1890’s brought gladness to our hearts.

It is on Netflix for another few days – scheduled to disappear on July 1st, 2018.  We couldn’t let the opportunity to enjoy this go by without a semi-sad good-bye viewing.  It was an hour and a half well spent; the visuals were overwhelmingly enjoyable.  We’re still talking about it daily.

It was fun to briefly see Porter, Stein, Toklas, Hemingway, Dali, Picasso, Eliot, etc..  Their interactions within the movie is probably total fiction, but it was fun to see them as they might have been in their beginning years.

I’ve never been to Paris, and really don’t aspire to do so, but I did thoroughly enjoy the scenery, as well as the nostalgia, in this film.  I found a site that shows some of the filming locations.  If you have a moment to spare, take a look!  ;->

    I love “Midnight in Paris” and watched it several times. Can you imagine sitting in Gertrude Stein’s home surrounded by emerging artists, poets, writers. What an experience.
