This is one of my favorite themes of all time…”Little Things”
Through all the hardest times we have in life, it is most definitely the little things that keep things in perspective and make us know that our cup overfloweth.

I have lots of ideas for new paintings for this theme, and I have lots of paintings from over the years have been painted for this theme. Today, I am posting this one from last spring. A little thing like going fishing is a sure way to know life is good, especially if you have homemade dragonfly jam in your lunch basket! There are prints available of this at the OPEN show.

The ever-awesome David Sones, a.k.a. PICKLEDOG tagged me last week, and with my uncle’s funeral and dad’s doctor appointments, etc, I am just getting to it.  

 Basically, I am a sucker for 1.really funny movies (or ones with funny one-liners even if the story stinks) and 2.really sappy, believable ones. I am drawn to the “dream, struggle, victory” theme, and I love pulling for the underdog. Here goes the list off the top of my head– in random order:

1. Napoleon Dynamite

2. The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio (great scene where the mom and daughter are sitting having a Coke while their car gets fixed)

3. It’s a Wonderful Life

4. Better Off Dead

5. Erin Brokevich

6. Raising Arizona

7. Trapped in Paradise

8. Million Dollar Baby

9. Miss Potter

10. Elf

11. The Jerk

12. Monty Python’s Holy Grail

13. Tommy Boy

14. Waterboy

15. Happy Gilmore

16. Meet the Parents

17. Sam I Am

18. Rudy

19. The Music Man 🙂

20. Field of Dreams

21. Mary Poppins

22. Finding Neverland

23. Peter Pan

24. Bambi

25. Big Fish
