LINCOLN IS A SUCCESS by Martin M. Rocha

Lincoln

Lincoln

Such a powerful and iconic historical figure Lincoln was. The film was amazing because Spielberg can do no wrong. I saw this beautiful amazing portrait of Lincoln on the way out of the theater and fell in love with it. Daniel Day Lewis did an outstanding job portraying Lincoln. Such an emotional and powerful film that touched the hearts of those that love American History. I know I do, it was my second major in college. Intrigue by the fact that this would be another Spielberg success I took the inspiration to draw Lewis’ image and transformed it into a beautiful piece of art. Step by step I see it as the most powerful portrait I have ever done. It was a very enjoyable piece to put together and a film that I strongly recommend for those that appreciate our history. This is art at it’s most emotional, powerful and iconic. Lincoln can do no wrong in art. A historical figure that every American should know of who he was and how he changed the face of American history. This is the beauty of Lincoln in film and in art. I think this portrait would look great in an American History teacher’s classroom. What do you think art fans? Prints will be available soon.

THE HUNGER GAMES IN ART by Martin M. Rocha

Hungry for more? That’s exactly the feeling I’ve got when I read and saw this fascinating motion picture. It’s definitely going to be one of the movies of the year. The book was so addicting that I couldn’t put it down. Full of detail and fascinating suspense I could define it as a book that it really grabs you. The movie was every bit as good, however. It is very difficult to cover all the details that the book includes into a blockbuster film. As it defines a new meaning for an era where Harry Porter and Twilight left off, The Hunger Games picks up and takes it into a new genre. Kids and adults, males and females are fascinated by it. I was amazed by the book and film that it inspired me to transform Katniss into the world of art. With a pure tone of color pencil I am delivering one of my greatest achievements.

PAUL MCCARTNEY GRAND FINALE AT THE GRAMMYS by Martin M. Rocha

And in the end……he was knighted by the British Empire as he is Sir Paul. One of the greatest performers of all time delivers a grand finale to remember.  During the last few minutes as we all waited after some great performers; the bass-man; instrumentalist and man of a thousand voices closes the show with the last three songs on the last Beatles album (Abbey Road) with that lasting and enduring lyric. Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End; the second part medley of side two still sounds as good as ever. After so many years and tears of joy he took the stage and the night just ended in a high perfect note.

A note that transmits, transforms and transcends from music to art and art to music. They still blend together as Paul shows he is still one of the most astonishing show man of all time. He is incredible and after all we could all say that Chris Farley did ask the right questions in that enjoyable humorous interview over fifteen years ago.

“AND IN THE END….THE LOVE YOU TAKE …..IS EQUAL TO THE LOVE YOU MAKE”. Simple and beautiful and Mr. Farley questions “IS THAT TRUE?” Of course it is! The more you give the more you get! “THAT WAS AWESOME!” Awesome is what describes last night performance. Thumbs up!


ADELE PERFORMS WITH HEART AT THE GRAMMYS by Martin M. Rocha

Making an incredible recovery and coming back with heart and soul, Adele performs like no other. Her performance at the Grammys was so emotional as she sang one of her most popular songs “Rolling in the Deep”. As she began singing you could feel the most incredible vibes going down your soul. You knew the performance was going to blow your mind; and it sure did.

By the time she began her performance she had already won a few awards. What can you say about the most outstanding performer of the year? With passion and such a strong commotion she was so grateful of how far she has come along. Her album 21 goes back to old fashion delicacy and deliverance to the emotional beats of Blues, Rock and Jazz. Did I miss a Genre? I sure did!! Pure Art. If you have not seen the music video for “Rolling in the Deep” tune in. It is as impressive artistically as it is musically. The art form and music blend in beautifully. There was no surprise for her winning the awards. She deserves to be the most outstanding performer in every step of the way.
