Artist Helps Dementia Patients

www.usnews.com

Popular painter Sarah-Jane Szikora has announced that she is using her artistic abilities to help dementia patients.

The northern artist announced on her personal blog that she is currently involved in the initial stages of designing and refurbishing three dementia wards in Bradford teaching hospitals.

Sarah-Jane said she hopes that her personal experience of dementia through her mother’s illness will help other people who are affected by the condition.

She wrote in her blog: “Through art, I can also use the experience and hopefully turn it into something positive for others. We must always strive to see the brighter side of life amidst the darkness of living. Laughter, after all, is the best medicine.”

The artist is spending less time on producing Sarah-Jane Szikora prints so that she can fully concentrate her efforts on the design and refurbishment project.

Sarah-Jane has called for further investment from potential donors as the scheme is mainly funded by charity and only receives a small amount from the NHS.

She added on her blog: “So what we lack in funds, we must try and make up for in creativity!”

Sarah-Jane recently told the arts and culture journal Fally rag that she hopes that her light-hearted and humorous prints of giant gingerbread man and confectionary characters provide people with happiness.

She told the publication: “The world doesn’t owe you happiness; you must earn it. Get on that journey of self-discovery and change something. Art helped me to be happy, so hopefully by offering my results, I can pass a little bit of that on.”

Sarah-Jane said that she wanted to inspire human warmth and connection through her irreverent artwork as she does not want to add to the despair that some people already experience.

“The world has seen enough misery without Tracy Emin’s dirty knickers thrown in,” she told Fally rag.

Life drawing classes at the Cleveland College of Art inspired Szikora’s passion for illustrating the human body, which she has now evolved to create extreme comedy figures.

People interested in viewing Sarah-Jane Szikora prints will be pleased to know that the artist said that she will soon be revealing the dates of some gallery events taking place in July.

The artist also said on her blog that she had the pleasure of going to an exhibition in Newcastle which displayed Fabian Perez prints.

Sarah-Jane Szikora prints have been displayed in Harrods, Selfridges and several important exhibitions across the United Kingdom.

Sports Art Basketball Paintings By Sports Artist Adam Port

Sports paintings allow fans and athletes to save a moment in time and remember it forever. Sports art collectors, myself included, usually immediately think of a framed photograph to hang on our wall, which usually include an autograph by the player as well. As a matter of fact, a picture was the only kind of sports artwork that Id even known about, aside from memorabilia such as a bat, baseball, hockey stick or jersey. This was before I saw the sports paintings by sports artist Adam Port.

In 2006, Port was featured on The Best Damn Sports Show Period on Fox Sports. He presented former Detroit Piston basketball player, and then co-host of the show, John Salley, with one of his famous basketball paintings. The artwork spoke for itself, as did Salleys reaction, which is typically the same for everyone – staring in amazement as they realize that its a painting, not a picture.

Salley isnt the only athlete to have this reaction. Port has created football paintings for Ray Lewis of the Baltimore Ravens, Justin Tuck of the New York Giants, Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks (although he was on the Denver Nuggets at the time of the painting), Rod Gilbert of the New York Rangers, Michael Jordan and John Stocktons Basketball Hall of Fame induction class, and most recently, a recreation of the Charles M. Conlon pictures, which were turned into baseball paintings. The Conlon paintings once again had Port featured on Fox Sports, This Week in Baseball.

After seeing Ports sports art, I now consider paintings of sports just as much as an option as a picture, stick, puck, bat, ball or jersey. As a matter of fact, Ports sports paintings are like nothing Ive ever seen before. They are so realistic that you might never be able to tell that its a painting until youre told, or youre standing face to face with it.

If youre a sports fan, sports art collector or an athlete you must see Adams artwork. Maybe you have no interest in sports at all, but youre an artist, or maybe youre not even an artist, you still should take a look at his sports paintings.

Realizing the Need to See Shirtless Male Celebrities

5

Dangerously bordering between a healthy habit to an obsessive fetish, perusing images of shirtless male celebrities have slowly crept into the daily routines of most teenage daughters, mothers, and even grandmothers. Apparently, a lot of men also seem to include this ritual in their daily tasks, no doubt to compare whose abdominals are tighter or which shirtless guy would most probably land him a lot of women. Still, there are those who need to simply because of the pleasure viewing male teats brings, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually and sexually.

Without going to the merits of whether this is actually moral or not, we need to realize that there exists a real need to see male celebrities without their shirts. Looking at these photos remind us non-celebrities that basically, there is nothing different between us and them. The just happened to have great paying jobs, better looking one-night stands and lots of days-off than the rest of us. But seeing them without their shirts shows us that in reality, they are just people. When you look at a lot of naked pictures, the pictures begin to lose their differences and appear common and usual. Male celebrities rely on looks, acting and influence. But without garments, they all look like typical males, complete with your nipples and belly button. Sure, most of them have well-chiseled bodies but still, seeing them uncovered reminds us that we have the same parts as they do, only less sculpted and more insulated.

Also, the world is in agreement that there is nothing wrong seeing a male without his shirt. Now, if that were a female, then that would be totally banned, although it would have made great viewing for a lot of people, in my and their very humble opinion. Men are always the protectors of their tribes or social units, and women and children look up to their males for protection, food, comfort and security. And what can be more comforting than the sight of a strong, able-bodied male? But sadly, the grandeur of the moment is dampened extensively with the presence of covering, thus, the need to see them shirtless.

The comforts of modern living has somewhat diluted the primal beast within the males of our species. Layers of clothing continue to alienate our naked bodies from the perusal and scrutiny of those who would most benefit from it. Fortunately, those who were gifted with the popularity to become celebrities have used their stature and social standing to remind us of the rawness and beauty that is the naked male body. The shirtless male celebrities of our society strive to encourage us all that there is nothing more adorable and pleasing to behold than the uncovered male form.

Of course, whether the actual adoration for such a thing leads to certain acts or behavior is beyond the point. Since time immemorial, and for many more years to come, the shirtless male celebrities will continue to be held in the highest praise and standard.

Allergy Spares No One, Not Even Celebrities!

10a12140-2c49-44b1-adc0-7ab0595a57f5-2560x1537

Allergy indeed is an inevitable thing, it spares no one! Allergies are abnormal reactions to ordinarily harmless substances. Allergic reactions occur when the immune system is triggered by allergens which can either be inhaled, swallowed or come in contact with skin.

Some of the most common allergens are; pollens, dust, foods, insect bites, mold spores, viruses, bacteria, even sudden change in environmental condition, plants and perfumes. People may vary in allergic reactions, some may have simple frequent sneezing, others may have skin rash from mild to severe, and some people may have other allergic reaction.

Celebrities With Allergies

Celebrities need to look good in front of the cameras all the timejust imagine seeing your favourite star sneezing all the time during an interview, or having those swollen nose, swollen lips or even swollen face because of allergies. That would be so shameful! But allergies are inevitable thing; anyone can have allergieseven stars!

Some of these stars are never ashamed to admit that they too have allergies; the telltale itchy, puffy, watery eyes and red, stuffy nose signal changes in the seasons in homes and workplaces across the country. What these people suffer from is allergic rhinitis, or hay fever. Hugh Grant, Scarlet Johansson and Hillary Duff all have hay fever. So the next time you see them on screen with the red nose, they may be suffering from their allergic rhinitis again!

As a celebrity, they must not only look goodthey should also smell really good because they will be dealing with so many people. But the perception of what really smells good for Eva Longoria and Drew Barrymore may be confusing because they are both allergic to perfumes.

Cats and dogs has been once a trend among the celebrities, we often see them cuddle them around. But for Paula Abdul, Nicole Ritchie, Tyra Banks and Alanis Morissette Cats are NO NO! These celebrities are all allergic to cats. Nelly Furtado is another star whos allergic to dogs, for his reason we never see her on screen with a dog. The furs on these pets probably trigger their allergies.

Sharon Stone and Anna Kournikova are both allergic to flowers. Mandy Moore is allergic to smoke, perhaps during her concerts she would not allow the smoke effect. Steve Martin, like many other ordinary people is allergic to shellfish. Its one of the most common allergies which so many people are suffering from. Britney Spears and Antonio Banderas are both allergic to insect sting; they often have this inflammation from an insect bite.

For this reason, it is very important to have an allergy test. Having an allergy test will help you avoid those allergens which cause your allergic reaction. As to what they always say, prevention is better than cure.
