OKLAHOMA!

Do I dare tell you that I saw Oklahoma in the theater in the 50's...it wasn't first run, but it wasn't that old either.  It's been a long time since I've seen it in any form, but I've been singing the music from it since saturday.
After learning about the Dust Bowl in history classes, I spent a lot of my life thinking that Oklahoma was pretty barren, but I've since learned that I was wrong.  I haven't been there, but I've been told that it's beautiful.  Although the movie was filmed in Arizona,  I'm using the film's landscape as my inspiration.  The blue sky, distant hills and trees are from the movie, the sunflowers are from my imagination.  I didn't see any in the parts of the movie that I looked at this week, but I'm sure there must be some in Oklahoma, somewhere.

The trees look barren, but I used my water color crayons and aqua painters to fill them with leaves...they just don't show up in the photo.  The gingham bow looks like it belongs in one of the girls' hair.
I can't wait until Carousel shows up on Cinema Saturday.  It's another great Rodgers and Hammerstein musical starring Shirley Jones and Gordon McRae (that I also saw in the theater in the 50's).
