A scene from LooperMy brother Eric was in town from Ohio this weekend. Saturday night Jessie, Eric and I went out to see “Looper“. We all thought it was a fun movie and had a great time.

I am mentioning it here because around the 2/3 of the way in there is a pivotal scene in a farm house. Hanging on the wall of this farm house near the bottom of an important staircase, was a square print of “Idyll“! I nudged Jessie, pointed it out, and whispered “That’s my picture!”.

Now I thought movie producers had to obtain releases for this sort of thing (as has happened to me once before) but maybe there is a “screentime” threshold under which it is not necessary. I don’t know (will be looking into it) and I wasn’t not worrying about at the moment.

My work has popped up in a lot of unexpected places this is the first time I’ve seen it up on the big screen. I must admit that I enjoyed it. If anything it is nice to know people are still enjoying my work 30 years from now!

It was also somewhat bittersweet because I know my Dad would have been there with us in the theater. I think he would have enjoyed it even more than I did.

Here is a version of the print (on Zazzle) that looks identical to what’s hanging in the farmhouse. Keep an eye out for it if you go to see the film (and you should!).

COMING SOON: My “Sierra Autumn” multiscreen is halfway finished. I hope to have it up within a couple of days. I’m also working on a little something for Halloween and a little something for people with Android devices. Stay tuned!
