I have always been a huge fan of David Hockney and while reading about him and some of his work I came across a reference to some friends who he painted Don Barchardy and Chris Isherwood and a reference to a movie about them. " Chris and Don: a Love story"

Well it finally appeared in my queue in netflix and watched it tonight. It was a wonderful love story. I am captivated by the depth of their commitment and Don's artistic integrity at the end ,at Chris's death. It was truly a wonderful/ documentary movie.

There were also some fun Key West connections as they were there for the filming of the "Rose Tattoo" as Tennessee Williams guests. If you get a chance to see this film I would recommend it.

  1. We saw the movie a couple of weeks ago - wasn't it great???? Also saw the Rose Tattoo and Maggie went to the house and photographed it and sent it to us... Met with our friends the other night and instead of coming to Key West for Christmas we have decided that we will come in March 2010 - just afraid that the weather would not be as warm as we would like. Hope that you are having a good day - we spent the whole weekend in the yard and have gotten lots accomplished - when we ar done I will send you a photograph of our Key West backyard.
