Dawg Movie Challenge

The DAWG team Blog is having a 'Movie Theme Challenge' for the month of May and it is open to all artists.  This is my entry, The Dance Off, from the movie Bye Bye Birdie with Ann Margret.  This is one of my favorite movies of all time.  This scene is when they were dancing to 'Lot of Livin'.  Hugo and Kim were fighting because of the Kiss that Conrad Birdie, big rock star, was going to bestow on Kim during the Ed Sullivan Show.  I found the scene on Youtube for you.  I hope you enjoy it.



If you are an artist, I am inviting you to go to the DAWG Blog and enter the challenge too.  I would love to see what you come up with.  Go to the DAWG Blog to find out more info.  This challenge is just for fun and I hope I'll see you there.  Oh, and tell your friends.
This is also for today's Paint Party Friday, hosted by Kristin and Eva.  I've been wanting to join for a while now and there's no time like present. Come on over and check it out!

Have a wonderful weekend,
hugs,
Brenda

Lynda Lehmann said...

I remember that movie with great fondness, too! It seemed to epitomize that (much more innocent) era!

I like your painting!

brendathour said...

Thank you Lynda. Yes, it was a much more innocent time. That's one of the reasons I like it so much.
