Tuesday’s Child

Posted by Sara on March 24, 2009

tuesday1 It’s all getting a bit Night Gallery here at Thee Nook as we welcome all you art lovers to our next painting to introduce our next story…….

This little lady was painted about a year ago, on a canvas I had found on a skip -which I just started throwing ink at until her face appeared. I love the contrast of her beatific expression against the slashing violence of the ink splashes. I wanted to do the same with words and Tuesday’s Child was the result. Not sure I succeeded but I’m pleased with this story nonetheless. To read it visit our sister blog: Shadows Time.

Hello Sailor!

Posted by Sara on February 22, 2009

I haven’t been doing too much painting lately. Hello Sailor! was painted December 2008 with acrylics on canvas. He is named after one of my favourite songs, performed by one of my favourite artists Genesis P-Orridge.

I painted him at work. Every year we hold an art exibition to commemorate World AIDS day and this year was my turn to run the art group. He was part inspired by a guy I used to work with at Feltham YOI, who had the most incredible energy about him and was one of the most positive people I have met. He was also a sailor.

Below is Hot Stuff, whom I painted in February.
