This morning I decided to sit on the couch, watch True Grit.. the original version with John Wayne, and stitch
up my insert for this art piece I did yesterday. I used some old white fabric that is wonderfully quilted, probably from an old mattress cover. I liked the soft homey look to the fabric. I lightly penciled the words in,
changing House to Home because it just is more, well, HOMEY! than house. I also added more
linoleum art to put a sun over the words. I really, really am pleased with the outcome. It just is a happy
piece of art.
And I was so happy to watch the old John Wayne True Grit. We went to see the new version last night.
I wasn't impressed, I am sorry to say. I have always liked Jeff Bridges but for me, he just didn't cut it
for this movie. For one thing, I had a hard time understanding his drawl.. he mumbled and often I couldn't understand exactly what he was saying. I liked Hailee Stanfield protrayal as Mattie about as equally well as I liked Kim Darby. Matt Damon was better than Glen Campbell, that goes without saying. But the new version overall, no. Filmed in Texas, not Colorado like the original version, so I am probably biased. Though anyone
would like the scenery in the original I would think!
I am still a TRUE fan of John Wayne. Always will be.
smile at someone today!
