And When He Sleeps He Dreams Of Stars

And When He Sleeps He Dreams Of Stars .......My friend, the very one who designed my pretty header at the top of this blog, is an artist. A very talented artist who’s work I have always admired – so why not get her to do a painting for us. Something unique and personal.

I started with the idea that I wanted something based around this photograph of Syd. It is such a dramatic shot and I always thought it would be amazing with some sort of dreamlike background – and that is really all I gave Shelley to go on. On Christmas Eve she arrived with the finished painting, a surprise for my other half who knew nothing about it, and a joint Christmas present to the two of us from my Grandad. I am utterly in love with it, it is just so perfect.
