It's Complicated (otherwise known as lifestyle porn)

I dragged the boyfriend to see It's Complicated the other night and for two full hours sat in my seat, completely agog at the gorgeous set design. Writer/director/producer Nancy Meyers is known for the stunning and plush homes she showcases in her films (they're referred to as 'lifestyle porn' for a reason) and in her most recent film, she did not disappoint. As much as I love watching the antics of Meryl Streep, John Krasinksi, and Steve Martin play out on the big screen, I have to admit that for me, the sprawling Santa Barbara home that's featured in It's Complicated takes center stage. It's my favorite character.

My painting in the middle of Meryl Streep's living room is copyrighted and I would appreciate it if you give me credit since you are using it on your sit.
Thank you,

Mitchell: I had no idea that the painting in the photo was yours, or that it was copyrighted. I have since updated the post. Your artwork is beautiful. Congratulations on making it into the film!
