Fun Day Sunday – Sunday in the Collage with Richard Armitage, 6/03/12 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #199)

You may have heard of the popular Stephen Sondheim musical from 1985 titled “Sunday in the Park with George”–it won a Pulitzer prize and two Tony Awards among other accolades  [(1)].

The musical is based on the famous 1884 Georges Seurat painting titled “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” [(2) right]–which “is an example of pointillism” [(2)].  The painting is rich in its complexity of composition.

So, I thought it might be fun to “pointedly” follow in Georges Seurat’s artistic vision and create a non-inclusive collage of Richard Armitage’s artistic projects– roles, photo shoots, etc.  With my grateful thanks to RANet (www.RichardArmitageNet.com) for their wonderful Richard Armitage resources [(3)] that I drew upon for the collage that I created!

Now!   See how many Richard Armitage references that you can spot in the multi-character Richard Armitage wallpaper graphic below that I’ve titled “Sunday in the Collage with Richard Armitage”.   You can right click on the image and save it to your computer to view it in a its large format.  Cheers!

P.S. As you are gazing at the collage, here is the song “Sunday” from Sunday in the Park with George” performed at the BBC’s Proms 2010 to celebrate Stephen Sondheim’s 80th birthday [(4) below]:

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

  1. P.S. And of course I should add that I am no Georges Seurat when in comes to art and graphics. Ha! I merely have a limited acquaintance with Photoshop, etc.

    Hi Grati,
    I’m very late, but I was without internet during all Sunday afternoon and night (here it’s Monday already). Nice graphic! I counted 31 RA references in it. Maybe he can be so kind and make the role of “sheep” to help me sleep now, LOL!
