Oh What a Beautiful Morning!
Bet you didn’t know that once Captain Pike and Vina were living in paradise for a few years they started a virtual theater group to stave off boredom! (Broadcasting directly from Talos IV!)*
I loved making this. It started when I came across this image of Vina talking and she looked like she was singing. Her pink gingham shirt reminded me of the purple gingham dress Laurie wears in Oklahoma! I was gladly able to change the pink to lavender using the hue/saturation key on Photoshop. Immediately I had to find a good ‘singing’ picture of Pike in the same scene, and fortunately there it was with Pike staring off in the distance. I borrowed Gordon Macrae’s cowboy hat and scarf from this image, and it all gelled together perfectly!
