Two paint jobs (of very different varieties) have caught my attention this week. First up, I was incredibly impressed by our friends, the Heffs, who painted their fence red, white and black in the hope that the Saints really do go marching in on Saturday – and you thought you were passionate!
While the Heffs are pretty handy with a paintbrush, few are quite as talented as New York artist, Alyssa Monks. Alyssa’s oil paintings go beyond photo realism. In fact, calling them phenomenal would be an understatement.

‘It is all about the desire to try to create an image of a person that is realer than real, beyond what even a photograph can portray,’ says Alyssa. And I say, ‘Mission accomplished!’
