super bowl sunday not

It's nice and quiet out there on the streets. Football parties, or in some homes just football is the day today. On a date with someone somewhere, eons ago, I likened the game to that of ancient tribes or Greek games. He liked me anyway. Not a big fan, am I.

Nice day for painting...or the movies. We went to see Revolutionary Road. It is very like a John Cheever novel, I think. We thought it much better than the reviews would have you believe. It was a slice of suburban 1950's angst....that you could apply to any time, really. A movie to cause good talk afterwards.

The football game is on, but it doesn't bother my painting I'm off to do it.


  1. Hi Gail, I like your writing style, so personal and friendly, like I know you already. My partner, a man I met on line, and I went off to MILK (Harvey Milk)which is a fabulous movie instead of the superbowl favoring gay rights activist over the super dudes. I like your first painting posted...woman in the boat looks like my mother! Thank you.

  2. Thanks, Maggie. I appreciate your nice to know someone is there! I do want to see Milk also, I remember the situation so well, and the Twinky defence. I'm looking forward to the Soloist...a Jamie Fox/Robert Downey movie. Cheers, Gail.

  3. at the moment i feel i'm in some film scene, or better, some good novel. / when i read your comment under illustrations/
    so, beautiful, bravo, for all!

  4. Hi Sandra,

    Isn't it the way....that our lives feel like a film or novel...I agree. Thanks for means a lot to not feel alone in the ether. gail

About Me

My photo
I am living and painting in the little town of Houston. A far way from my San Francisco beginnings. I paint what I see of the human condition, be it human, animal or object. The glimmer of humor, pathos, and spirit in so much of what I see is the basis of what I paint.
