May 14th

May 14th will always be a special day in the Resella Family. May 14th, 1917 is when Benjamin Resella was born. Happy Birthday Grandpa, you would have been 92 years old today. For the past couple of weeks I have been going through all the photos and negatives and scanning them. Here are some of the great works that he did that I would like to share.

My Grandpa painting the scene for Earthquake the movie. Back then he painted these scenes and now they are easily created with computers.

StarTrek
Grandpa with a background scene that he painted from Star Trek the motion picture. Hard to believe that he’s standing in front of a painting. The picture is signed be all the cast: Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner and even the creator of Star Trek himself Gene Roddenberry.

Benjamin
This was from my brother Robin who created this image for our memory book. The words say it all…
