In the Wizard of Oz Paintings I have done in a series, I personally liked those reverse painting on glass that showed the yellow brick road. There is no explanation for it, just really like the road.
Even though I pretended to be Dorothy in my blue and white checkered dress as a little girl, the movie terrified me when it came on television every year. I was the victim of older, sadistic sisters. They drug me to the living room when it was time for the Wizard of Oz to run.
As an adult I met a man who could play the lion, the scare crow, and the tin man. I mean the whole song and dance routine! The best part of that was, I never learned it until we were about to be married! He was amazing! Even with the scare crow’s dancing, that as a child, I always saw as just tripping over himself in a musical kind of Wizard of Oz fashion.
Viewing the movie in a different light as an adult, I am now able to enjoy it even though I need to remind myself that most of the flying monkeys were actually filmed from children’s’ toys swinging on strings.
