Apologies for the paucity of posts this past week – my laptop has crashed, taking all my pictures and documents with her.  Things should be back to normal soon so in the meantime here’s  a picture of thee birds to celebrate our one year anniversary of blogging. Speak soon! (I hope….)

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.
