  1. Dear Sarah,
    I bought one of your prints while on holiday in Exeter and should like to commission you to do a portrait of my children as a wedding anniversary present for my husband.Are you accepting commissions while you are in Cyprus?

    • How many children and what size would you like it to be ? Also when do you need it by ? I will be in Cyprus until the 5th of July and it may be difficult (but not impossible) to complete it from Cyprus as I am not painting in oils here.

      • Just 2 ,boy 17 girl 13 .Our wedding anniversary is 22nd April.I’d leave the medium to you . If April is not possible then the next significant date is his birthday on 22 nd September.As far as size is concerned I am sure the children would like to keep it as small as possible .I’m not really sure;is there a typical size people ask for…..sorry to be so vague.


  2. Yes, apologies to you, you’re right again, but do you think it looks neater typographically?
    I hope the weather is warmer where you are and I hear the Greek economy has come an acropolis.
    Never mind, keep up the artistry!


  3. Hi Sarah,
    I like the abstracted head studies, they would be a good starting point for future sculpture work.

    (I don’t want to be an anorak and pedantic but shouldn’t the heading of your blog page read ‘Sarah Hoskins’ Cyprus Blog’ as your surname already ends with an ‘s’. It’s annoying me a little).

    Yours pedantically,
    Paul V


    • I just looked it up and we are both right :

      Apostrophe Rules for Possessives

      A lot of people get confused about when they need to use an apostrophe and when they don’t. Here are a few apostrophe rules to help you decide.

      Use an apostrophe + S (‘s) to show that one person/thing owns or is a member of something.

      * Amy’s ballet class, Lisa’s car, Robert’s car, Ross’s room, Ross’s sports teams

      Yes, even if the name ends in “s,” it is still correct to add an “‘s” to create the possessive form. It is also acceptable to add only an apostrophe to the end of singular nouns that end in “s” to make them possessive.
