Beauty is Embarrassing 2012:

Product Details     Wayne White is a cartoonist who worked on Pee-wee’s Playhouse.  He was raised in the Tennessee mountains but started his career as a cartoonist in New York.   He moved to Los Angeles with the Playhouse crew.  After Playhouse ended he worked on other projects in LA until he decided to change up his projects.  He buys framed landscape paintings from thrift stores.  He paints words, statements, pithy and sarcastic texts on top of the paintings.  White also performs an autobiographical show for theater audiences.
       I can see this going straight to DVD but not in theaters?  It is nice to see someone able to make a living from doing what they want after paying a lot of dues with grueling computer work on mind draining projects.  3* (This movie is OK)
92 min, Doc directed by Neil Berkeley with Wayne White, Mimi Pond, Woodrow and Lulu White, Gary Panter, Mark Mothersbaugh, Ric Heitzman, Billie June and Willis White.
Note:  Imdb 6.5 out of 10, 93% critic 88% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
