A fun busy visit to Little Rock! Mom and I saw "Slumdog Millionaire" yesterday. I love the yellow tunics and scarfs in the movie...they add such a note of hope and optimism even when the story was a bit dark!

This morning, at Mom's suggestion, we went to the Clinton Presidential Library, overlooking the Arkansas River in downtown Little Rock.
There, in addition to all the memorabilia from the Clintons' 8 years in the White House, was a show of 200 paintings called "Peter Max Paints America"

Here is a sample. He has painted the Statue of Liberty every year for many years....

It is said that the face he used here was that of beautiful model, Roseanne Vela. Roseanne has Little Rock connections too, she graduated from high school in Little Rock. I think I can definitely see her mouth here!...hmmm and her nose....and

Here is Rosie on the cover of Vogue about 1978.
Visiting the Presidential Library/museum was a lot more fun that I thought it would be, a great change of pace for both Mom and me! I'm glad she wanted to go there!

Peter Max is always so colorful. An exhibit of his must be wonderful to see. Glad you're having fun.
