Here in Eden
The Apple Tree comes to you from the same team that created Fiddler on the Roof. It's a three storied play with the first section an adaptation of Mark Twain's Adam and Eve. It moves into a musicalized version of The Lady or the Tiger? before presenting Passionella, an update of Cinderella. If, within yourself, you even detect the tiniest whiff of curiosity about Barbara Harris as a musical performer, check this out. She's brilliant.
I was trying something new this go-round. Usually I work in black and white before pushing the image into color, but this time I started everything out in a simple blue. I don't know that it helped or hurt much. Naked human beings take time to paint, and happily I got to push in some color I've not played with since college. Overall, the effect is still a bit gray and unrefined, but it could still make a fun painting later. Ten more minutes and I'd have broken out the 'saturate' sponge tool. I'd feel better about it if I had.
