And thanks to Ted for recommending it. You were right.
Go see it on the big screen.
It’s not just action films that deserve a big screen.
My words of wisdom…..
This is a photograph of my father holding my older brother while my older sister is trying to hide behind his leg. It was taken in 1949 in NE, Washington, DC where we lived when I was little.
I hope all the father’s out there have a good Father’s Day.
I certainly intend to.

Join filmmakers Ellen Weissbrod and Melissa Powell and guest scholar Judith Mann, Curator, European Art to 1800, Saint Louis Art Museum, in-person with the new film, “a woman like that” (2010, 93 min), an investigative tribute to 17th century Italian Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi. The filmmakers’ creative and engaging pursuit seeks the truths behind the life and work of this legendary artist. Includes footage of rarely seen works found only in private collections. Discussion with Q&A will be held after the film.
Artemisia Gentileschi was a lone woman painting in a man’s world. This film has stirred discussion and brought Gentileschi’s art to a wider audience. The documentary film, “a woman like that” (2010) is currently touring universities and art galleries with the filmmakers.
Richmond.com has a nice article by Colleen Curran on the flim and filmmakers.
It is time to start planning a weekend trip to Loversville.
You can catch them at Elwood’s Cafe’ on Saturday June 18th from 6-8pm and again on Sunday the 19th at the Commercial Tap House starting at 8pm.
I know it’s hot outside but it is always a few degree more pleasant in Loversville.
See you there.
This weekend you can be transported to a funky place and enjoy the sounds of Rattlemouth at Emilio’s this Saturday June 11th with Constance on the cello.
I bet you could buy a copy of the new Rattlemouth CD while there. Emilio’s is at Meadow and Broad.
