Rumors fly like frisbees in a small town, and frisbee has it that, a few years ago, Bruce Willis was checking out the area just south of our little town as a possible venue for his daughter’s college education. Can you imagine how the desultory, sad little Parents’ Day festivities would have seen a surge of participation if Mr. Willis showed up to eat little crackers and crumbly goat cheese?
Perhaps it was all of the open space that scared Bruce off — although a man like this is not easily deterred by stalks of wheat and herds of deer.
Given the amount of collateral damage done in Mr. Willis’ presence during his latest movie, Red, we should be grateful that the deal didn’t go through. Beautiful Red Hills like the ones in the Norwegian Artist’s painting would be literally red, blown up by a flying semi-truck hurtling through the air. Although everyone in the truck — such as Bruce and his co-horts, would escape unscathed, the truck, and the hills, would not.
You don’t have to be the well-heeled neighbor of Bruce Willis — or Mary Louise Parker, John Malkovich, or Morgan Freeman for that matter — to own a painting like Red Hills, because the paintings at Steve Henderson Fine Art are not only beautiful, they are affordable. Regular, every day people who do not drive flying, exploding semi-trucks, can own original, fine art.
