Ingrid Bergman stole the highlights

November 26, 2010

1. Ingrid Bergman in her Chevy Nova

I was thinking of angels and devils this week and conjured up my favorite angel, Ingrid Bergman. She died in 1982 but arrived on Monday in her vintage 70s Nova. She came to help me prepare an entry for the 6th Annual Jane Lund Invitational at the Northampton Center for the Arts. This year’s theme is Angels and Devils.

Ingrid and I went to Mister Tire in Plainfield. In the following picture Ingrid shows me her first choice in tires.

When we got back home, Ingrid helped me with Thanksgiving cleaning. I have pictures of her with the dishes, sweeping the floor, making coffee, cleaning the refrigerator, sitting in the oven, etc. My favorite picture is of her helping me with the ironing.

I’m noticing how aerodynamic all my appliances are. They would have very litle wind resistance if I threw them out the window. Anyway, after Ingrid and I finished our work we settled down for some quality time.

You may have noticed that Ingrid has been crying throughout her visit. She is represented by a record album cover for the soundtrack to “For Whom the Bell Tolls.” Ingrid earned three Oscars during her career in film. She also gave birth to Isabella Rossellini. Isabella is best known for her role in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet in the ’80s.

OK, the point to this post is that I want help deciding which print of Ingrid to submit to the Angels and Devils Invitational. I need to decide by Saturday, December 4th. Let me know which picture you like best. All suggestions will be entered into a final drawing on December 6th and the winner will receive an 8.5X11 Epson Exhibition Fiber print of their choice from the series. Please submit the number of the image you like best in a comment to this blog or via Facebook.

    Everything is a matter of proportion.

    Hi Lyn, You are the only responder that picked my pick for the Angels and Devils show in Northampton. True to my promise, though, I will go with the popular choice, #1 Ingrid Bergman died in 1982 but arrived Monday in her vintage Chevy Nova.
