And now for something completely different...

That's not a painting!
It's a still from my husband, David Christensen's, documentary which will be screening on Friday night at the Calgary International Film Festival.
"The Mirror" is a gorgeous film about a tiny medieval town in the Italian Alps that receives no sunlight for 3 months of the year because the mountains block the low winter sun. As a creative solution to this problem, the town erected a giant mirror on a mountain to reflect the rays of the sun down into the town square. David captured this event and the quirky inhabitants of the town as well.
The film is screening at the Plaza Theatre on Friday at 9pm. Hope you'll come out and see it!

My girlfriend got to see this at True/False and really loved it (I, unfortunately, couldn't make it work in my lineup)--especially the use of local music.
We really enjoy your paintings, too. Your colors are stunning. Thanks!
