Rubbo's paintings
9 August 2007 | by robertheadceecSee all my reviews

Actually, I own the Starry Night reproduction painting with Jo's airplane in it - a gift I recd from Michael Rubbo many years ago. The film is truly great, and the painting treasured. I don't want to be a spoiler, but I suspect we haven't heard the last of Jo yet! I know Michael has been toying with the idea for sometime - perhaps supportive fans could encourage him further. The story of the paintings is funny - someone was hired to do them, initially, but did such a poor job of it Michael became frustrated and decided to do them himself. He has since painted many works of art, and is as well known for his paintings as his films. For a long time, he also did reproductions of Monet, and others. Very talented man. Michael is now back in Australia, I understand - but has contributed greatly to Canada's film heritage.
