Above: The trailer for "Beauty is Embarrassing." Find the trailer on YouTube if this embedded version doesn't work.
Readers of my blog know I have a love-love relationship with my Roku. I stream videos from Amazon Prime (and get two-day free delivery on my book purchases). While adding titles to my watch list the other day I came across "Beauty Is Embarrassing."
It's a documentary about artist Wayne White who worked on "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" in the 1980s and is known for his "word" paintings on thrift-store paintings.
Watch the embedded trailer and get a feel for his attitude and need to create art. Be inspired by his working process and his understanding that "Art can be a 24/7 lifestyle." You'll enjoy learning about his artistic journey and how he strives to make art entertaining.
You can see the full film on Amazon Prime for a small fee; Netflix may be showing it; or look for it on Hulu and other vendors. You can also buy the film on the "Beauty is Embarrassing" website.
