I ought'a be in pictures

Remote Nearness 4 by Karina Nishi Marcus

Hugh Grant in "Did You Hear about the Morgans?"

I am giddy that I have a painting in a major motion picture.

It was stressful and exciting to watch the movie. I did not know where my painting might be, or if it ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor. In fact, it was not until the very last scene of the movie, in the couple's new New York apartment that I finally saw it. It is hung side-ways (which only goes to show one of my composition principles that good composition can be seen from multiple angles) and poorly lit -- but hey -- that is the director's prerogative.

I have included an image of how I choose to orient the painting so that you can see it in its entirety. To have a painting in a movie is a first time experience for me and if I might trumpet a bit, I am very proud.

  1. Congratulations on your movie star painting and your new blog! I will begin to follow.

  2. Congratulations on your new blog and the painting in the movie. That's fantastic! I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'll certainly look for it. I'm sure not to miss a Hugh Grant film.

  3. Wow--that's fantastic! Congratulations!
