15 minutes in blue fame
Some Hollywood set designers took an interest in a few Bev Hogue blue paintings for an upcoming pilot earlier this year.
After some back and forth on the cast of paintings, Suffragette, Boot Camp, Undercover Girl and Passion Flower were chosen to be positioned in the bedroom of actress Natalie Martinez for a TV series called Warrior.
We heard that director Phillip Noyce loved the paintings. I recall how the Australian director brought us to the edge of our seats in the film Dead Calm, the open-ocean thriller that brought Nicole Kidman international attention.
Alas, the series is not to be, but these Bev Hogue paintings got to strut under the lights for a few weeks of shooting in the spring.
It’s not true that these girls are feeling blue. They feel pretty good to have been chosen to appear alongside kick-ass martial arts crime fighter Kai Forrester (Martinez).
