The first painting, 'OK, look' was a response to the exhibition I had of the paintings I had made of Blue. (click here to see the post. The Blue Years exhibition)
When we look at life drawing we look at the figure depicted. We may look at emotion, brush strokes, the human being. Whether the person is able-bodied is not the issue. Here Leo is simply 'the model'.

In the second painting I explore how disabled people, if represented in anyway, rarely are show with status. We noticed professor Steven Hawkins always wears a suit and so we explored this idea.
