a visit to the grind house

How fabulous is this outsider art! This stenciled lady is painted on the wall next to the Beverly Cinema where we went last night. I wonder if it was one whole stencil spray painted on the wall...However it was done, this life sized lady is wonderful...I just had to take a picture of her to share. Can you dig it Sarah...maven of Stenciling?

The Queen is painted high up near the roof...The Queens of Hollywood...only in LA!

So what were we doing at the Beverly Theatre? Last night we were all invited to Quintin Tarentino's Grindhouse Festival 2007. Why? Because my ex Brother-In-Law Richard Compton wrote and directed two of Quintin's favorite pics for the festival "Macon County Line" and "Return To Macon County Line". These flicks were two of Richy's first movies he directed in what has become a long line of credits..."Return to Macon County Line" starred two, then unknown actors, Don Johnson and Nick Nolte. They had great chemistry together, and watching this movie was totally entertaining. I'm so glad Richy invited us.
Here's a picture of my arbor in bloom...just in time for Easter.

Hope the Easter Bunny is good to you all...

This made me laugh SO hard ---
I love it --- and it's amazing but it was probably done with fewer stencils than you would think.
The Queens are grand, too.

I had a wonderful day with my boys, so the Easter Bunny certainly was good to me. Your arbor looks beautiful. I hope you had a wonderful day.

I bet it's kind of crazy (and fun ) being so connected and yet you grow up with these people just being your family and friends . I liked the stencils too , especially the old woman. And I love your secret garden with the buddah , it looks really pretty. It's fun.
