A little gem for me and I thought I'd share. "RED" is a play by John Logan and was first performed in London and then New York. Alfred Molina starred as Rothko in both cities. I've been a life long fan of Mark Rothko so this rather short powerful play was a true pleasure. One of the lines by Rothko, "There is only one thing I fear in life, my friend...One day the black will swallow the red."

Movie recommendation: "The Way" starring Martin Sheen and directed by his son Emilio Estevez. It is about a pilgrimage hiking the Camino de Santiago and much much more.

Art update: Slow going with my metallic exploration. My copper piece has devolved into a rather dull brown mess. I learn from the failed pieces so its all good. Hope to have something to show in a couple days...maybe something not brown!


  1. Similar things happen in my studio, on a regular basis. Persevere, I tell myself. Some times the way out is all the way through to the other side.

  2. it was performed around here too but i didnt get to it.

    started watching the way but didnt finish, could do tonight. didnt realize emilio was his son but they look so alike so makes sense. the name tripped me up.

  3. Thanks for all the tips, and enthusiasm...nothing will swallow you up!!

  4. Betting that is a great play,,,and I love the Rothko quote!

    You'll find your path out of the brown disapointment.
    I'm sure you left copper colored crumbs to find the way.It's in your head waiting until the time is right.

  5. annell, I show everything I'm working on even when it isn't a 'keeper'! Thanks for stopping by!

    Leslie, Such good advice...I'm on my way through this shiny stuff!

    Suki, Hope you enjoy 'the way'!

    Lyn, So good to read your words...I'm feeling stronger already!

    Babs, Good advice...follow the copper crumbs...they are everywhere! I still love doing the work...even the disappointing stuff!
