In Search of Adventurous Bloggers...

Followers of my blog know that every weekend... usually Saturday... I like to take my readers on a VIRTUAL trip. We've been to the South of France, Paris, Tuscany, Morocco, Mexican Riviera, Greece, New York, San Diego. (Some of these trips have been turned into frameable notecards and are available in MY ETSY STORE.)

These VIRTUAL TRIPS began when fellow bloggers began requesting... "Fifi, take us here... takes us there... paint this movie set... paint that movie set!" And the requests continued... the trips continued... but I thought "HEY... it would be FUN to get the bloggers involved in the process. Soooooo... in September I asked fellow bloggers to be part of the adventure... and be the STAR for the day!

This has been a lot of FUN... we have made trips to Hawaii, Out of Africa, returned to Greece, Irondale, Alabama to have Fried Green Tomatoes, Brasil and Antigua. Other movies already visited... Breakfast at Tiffany's, Mamma Mia, Chocolat, Amelia, Under the Tuscan Sun, A Good Year and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. (I have not forgotten your other movie Cris... we will get to it.)

NOW... I'm in search of NEW ADVENTURES... I've run out of "blogger assisted" requests... and NOW... I need YOU to take us on a trip! FIRST LET ME SAY... THIS IS NOT A CONTEST... I AM TAKING EVERY APPROPRIATE IDEA... HERE is how it works... YOU will be the STAR in charge... We will do this on a first come basis... If you would like to participate leave me a comment... HOWEVER... be prepared to do a little work...

1. You will pick the location or movie set.

2. You will tells us YOUR reason for this choice and maybe a little story about this location or movie set... so we will get to know a little bit about YOU!

3. You will email me photos or links to this location or movie set... I will do the painting.

4. You will post a link on YOUR blog the week that YOUR location or movie set post is being featured.

OK... who's READY? And... who knows... you might even win an Oscar or at least a surprise!!! AGAIN... THIS IS NOT A CONTEST... I AM TAKING EVERY APPROPRIATE IDEA... SEND LINKS and/or PHOTOS... and YOU WILL BE THE STAR ON MY BLOG FOR A DAY!

I choose Boston/Cape Cod. I lived there for a brief time after school and fell in love. Being near salt water and hearing the tides drift in/out is just about heaven on earth to me! Of course, you can get this near any body of water, but New England is a magical place - full of history, old lighthouses, covered bridges, beautiful architecture - is just a special place.
I will email you pictures tonight!

What a great idea Fifi! I will get back to you...I have an idea!

Ooooh YEAH! What a fun idea!

Mine is from the move Great Expectations (1998) with Gwyneth Paltrow. I love the scene when she and Ethan Hawk are walking through central park, and all of the different bridges. They meet up on Bows Bridge, and it's gorgeous!

Great Expectations is one of my all time favorites, I love the color (so much green in every scene!), drama, soundtrack, art (Francesco Clemente)->

GREAT idea! I have to give this one some thought...

Debbie said...

I pick the movie "Dirty Dancing".

Because - Well because it's my favorite movie of all time! I can't even begin to count just how many times I've watched that movie. And hubby went a step further and purchased the DVD for me several years ago.

I'm quite fond of the peaceful setting, so please don't put "Baby" in a corner. Just kidding.

I know it's gonna be great no matter who you choose.

Blessings - Debbie

What a fabulous idea! My choice would be Giverny in France (Claude Monet's gardens)on the bridge or under the arbor of flowers. I went there when I was in high school. Right now I could use the peace and quiet of nature to comfort me. That place is inspiring.

Aww - now I am really hoping you pick me! I want peace!

My home - My life said...

What a fun idea!!! Can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Ivy Lane said...

I hope someone stars in a New York City/ Sex and the City trip..with the fasions, the friends..the shoes!!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Oh such lovely ideas and I will be looking forward to each and every one of them AND the other movie I mentioned. :))) You didn't forget. Cool. :))

What a cute idea! I can't wait to see the results! I love Debbie's idea of "Dirty Dancing" ...so great!

Ms. Tee said...

This sounds like fun - I'll have to think on this... :)

The Lil Bee said...

OOH! What fun! Can we go to Ischia or Amalfi? Or maybe Thailand, a ala "The Beach"? I can't wait to see these unfold!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Wonderful idea, Fifi. I'm looking forward to the results!

Rachel said...

Great idea!!!

Chris said...

Oooh, this sounds fun! But you've already done the place I would do—Hawaii. I was just there for my honeymoon and have TONS of pictures for you to work off of...about 3,000 to be exact. Well, if you want to do Hawaii again, let me know. I can send you some stuff. And I also went to the Adirondacks last year and have some cool pix from there too, so that's an idea... :)

Little House on Green said...

How fun! I suggest my home town: Santa Barbara!! (unless of course you've already been there - done that) . . . I'm a new reader so I need to catch up on the past :)

kendalee said...

What a great idea Fifi! I love movies and to travel - in reality and virtually - and I've thoroughly enjoyed the adventures since I discovered your blog. I also look forward to seeing everyone else's, enhanced with your lovely paintings.

I'd like to do a trip to Sri Lanka please - if no-one else chooses it. I've chosen Sri Lanka because it's the most interesting new place I've been to recently, I LOVED every minute of my trip, and it is visually gorgeous... :)

Sunny said...

Cute paintings! I would pick the Great Barrier Reef because I scuba and would love to dive there! Ever done an underwater scene? New here and haven't seen all of your work (Loftilerm was cute though).

Elizabeth said...

I have several places that would make beautiful paintings, and I've already blogged about them. Check out my site under the Travel tag.
A place I've always wanted to visit is Carmel, CA. That would be great, also!

Hello there dear Fifi ... lets go international and maybe try New Zealnd - south island of course ... do you do sheep - there are LOTS of them ) .... will be following along for the ride - cheers le

Barbara said...

Oh I choose Iceland... I can send you many a gorgeous photo. My mother is Icelandic and met my father when she was in the states going to college. So I've go there many a time to visit family. I'd live there if I could afford it, and my hubby were willing! I will follow-up with pictures from home tonight :)

I am going to send you some photos of Cat Island, The Bahamas. The movie tie-in is that Casino Royale was filmed on a few of the Out Islands of the Bahamas. It's a beautiful place, Cat Island. It's isolated and quiet and the beaches and water have to be seen to be believed. So I hereby nominate Cat Island.
