So, the weekend has come and gone *sigh* but so has Monday *phew*!
I watched a heap of movies, well two actually at the weekend. I saw "The Informant!" which is a Soderbergh movie with Matt Damon. I won't say what it's about because things about the story and lead character are revealed right up to the end credits. It was watchable enough - I admire Soderbergh's sheer volume of work and the creative way he goes about film making. I feel he is an "auteur" in the true sense that Truffaut spoke about all those years ago in the '50s.However, having said that, I never feel "wow" after his films. Maybe instead of "WOW" I feel quiet admiration.
The other film I saw was "The Invention of Lying" with Ricky Gervais. I really like Ricky Gervais - his stand up shows sometimes make me laugh until I weep. He seems to have a very endearing personality to my mind. While this film was based on an interesting concept, nobody in his world ever lies, it kind of lost it's way for me about half way through and I'm afraid my boyfriend and I switched it off. Actually, I think the real reason I ejected it was Jennifer Garner's face - I found her pumped lips, botox and cheek implants very off putting and distracting!
I also managed to draw three pictures! That's Paula up top in the natty pink suit and monocle, Chloe being super art deco and Geraldine being...well Geraldine.
You wouldn't think it to look at Geraldine - but she is pretty significant in the drawing department for me. Firstly, I've been hanging out to draw a black bird with white spots forever. Really and truly. Secondly, even though those white spots look pretty rough and ready, they were an utter labour of love and deep therapy! At the end of Saturday I was feeling a little shall we say "crabby" for one reason or another and doing the white spots on Geraldine really improved my mood no end! I guess that's what they might call "Art Therapy"? ...and thank you Geraldine.
Hope everyone has a super week!
