Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
Roger Ebert, a fixture in the critic’s world, passed away yesterday. I can’t say I was an avid, or even semi-avid, watcher of Siskel and Ebert or At the Movies. I can probably count the number of times I’ve seen the show on both hands and read Ebert’s reviews from time to time. So why am I talking about him? Because yesterday I read an incredible piece he wrote re-printed by Salon.com that discussed his views on death. It nearly had me in tears it was so lovely.
Inspired by his thougthful words, I created this simple, ethereal piece.
I had never heard of Roger Ebert but read his piece – it is wonderful, philosophical and giving. I hope he went as gently as his writing suggests. Your painting does him justice!
I used to listen to Siskel and Ebert on PBS…so sorry to hear about Mr. Ebert’s death! Your painting is so beautifully appropriate!
