Movie: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Image
“‘You were a child once, too.’ That’s what Mister Rogers said, that’s what he wrote down, once upon a time.”
~ Tom Junod, quoting Mister Rogers, in “Can You Say…Hero?” (Esquire, November 1998) ________________________
I just saw A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, starring Tom Hanks and Matthew Rhys. Yes, yes, yes! One of the best movies I have ever seen. If you haven’t seen it or read anything about it, it will not be about what you think it might be. It’s difficult to describe without giving important parts of it away, so I won’t. Just watch the trailer. For those who have seen the movie, here is the link to “Can You Say…Hero?”, the article on which the movie is based. If you haven’t seen the movie, please don’t read this article until you have seen the movie. Trust me on this. Go ahead and print it out or save it on your computer for later, but see the movie first. My heart is full. Rotten Tomatoes review. 95%!!!



Oil Painting: Anna Hineman Roberts -- Flowers in Vase (Still Life)

Image
Title: Flowers in Vase (Still life) Artist: Anna Hineman Roberts Size: 14 x 18 inches (Without frame) Size: 16 x 20 (With frame) Where acquired: Shrewsbury Goodwill Date acquired: December 21, 2019 Paid: $4.00 (Not for sale)

Ms. Roberts’ style reminds me of my late mother-in-law’s (Anita Siegel) work. The colors are so vibrant and alive. Anita had macular degeneration, so the bright colors made a lot of sense. I don’t know why Ms. Roberts chose such bright colors – I am not familiar with her body of work, which seems to be extensive, according to the resume attached to the painting. Ms. Roberts’ Obituary
