While we’re on the topic of cowboy boots and country livin’, I need to mention a couple of my favorite country folk. About 20 years ago my lovely spouse made a film called The Potter’s Meal, about Joe Bennion a potter and his family living in rural Utah. His wife and artist Lee Udall Bennion is spotlighted for a moment in the film but remains a bit mysterious. I have always been intrigued by her artwork and The Potter’s Meal left me wishing I had her style and creative mojo… and dreaming I could afford one of her paintings someday.
Still life, 1995.
So, finally a spotlight of Lee, made this year and just released on YouTube by my afore mentioned lovely spouse. She’s in her studio, speaking inspiring words of doing what makes you happy and living a rich full life- a topic I think we are all sensitive to.
Check it out and subscribe to The Talking Fly for a weekly dose of inspiration. And if we all beg, maybe he’ll get The Potter’s Meal tranferred from film to video for it’s 20th year anniversary.
