An African Adventure Awaits You...

Looking at these painted posters (by moi) daily in my son's room...
Being stared at by these masks...
I feel today is the right day to grab this hat off the wall and journey to Africa... grab your pith helmet and let's go!
Habitually Chic has found a lovely Giraffe Manor for us to stay...
Or we could rough it in a hut...
Or... there is always this place we could stay... Cris, artist in Oregon would want us to definitely find out more about this house...Does this house look familiar? Hint... 1985... Robert Redford and... let's peek inside for...
Meryl Streep... there she is... accommodations... look pretty nice in OUT OF AFRICA...
The movie Out of Africa is loosely based on a memoir by Isak Dinesen, a nom de plume used by the Danish author Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke. The book was published 1937 and tells the events of the seventeen years that Blixen lived in Kenya. The book talks about Blixen’s life on her coffee plantation and about people who were apart of her life there. It is also speaks about African colonial life. This is the real Blixen... And here is my painting of Meryl as Blixen in the 1985 movie Out of Africa which romanticizes a relationship between Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton...it is true that they had a relationship... but the true story is not exactly like the movie... you can read the true story here... for this post I will keep the romance alive that Hollywood depicted and every woman swooned over... The chemistry between Robert Redford and Meryl Streep was dynamic, winning the film 7 Oscars... and the hair washing scene will go down in history as one of the most romantic moments on the silver screen...
I have to tell you the truth... I have not seen this movie...
but I love the photos of the couple picnicking... so romantic to lounge in a field with a handsome man, drinking wine, feasting on some delightful food... aaaaah... I give you this painting... And before you run off to rent this movie... that's what I plan to do... because if I don't... I'm afraid Cris will not speak to me anymore... and I don't want that... I rely on her stopping by daily to give me words of encouragement! Soooooooooo... Without further adieu... I give you the names of the Giveaway Winners...
