"Painting Bolinas is a documentary about a 90 yr old artist, Peter Lee Brownlee whose lifestyle mirrors a king in a court of chaos and imagination. Peter is known as the "cake decorator" because of his massive layering technique, creating rich textures, his paintings are of urban and rural downtowns and famous landmarks all across America. In an earlier time, one of his paintings was on the cover of "New York Living" and he donated paintings to help Yoko Ono raise funds for the Strawberry Fields John Lennon Memorial. His court includes an eccentric collection of people who have lost their dreams and found their way to Bolinas, a village that seems to teeter between the edge of the world and the edge of the Pacific. This film portrays how one man has dealt with the aging process by doing it his way and the zany characters that choose to live out their lives with him.

I loved it. What a fantastic film this will be. I cannot wait to see the end product! This is a film that needs to be made. Not many filmmakers make movies that include the disenfranchised, a population that is mostly ignored.Incredible characters! I love the story line. I love the artist's paintings. So colorful and happy!
