Have you heard of Jenny Saville?

Didn’t think so. Why would you want to? I’ve never seen such butt-ugly portraits in my whole life. Still there’s something about them. I mean, she’s not vain. Maybe that’s what’s so fascinating about it. I’m telling you, you don’t want to do a google image search on her name.


Last wednesday I took my 7 year old niece to see The Nutcracker. Nobody else she knows is into ballet so I figured I’d introduce her to it. I thought the whole concept was a bad excuse for wearing funny costumes and dancing all sorts of different dances, it was a big jumble really but the children like it and I guess that’s the point 🙂
