“Boris” by @Stef1


Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,




First of all, for those who do not know this Friday Steem community has an opportunity to start on a new Blockchain HIVE that will take over those who would like to start from beginning but with the same people. It is like moving house but with the same family. Please read the post and if you like it let’s move on to HIVE!

Today I wanted to present you my new work actually it is a combination many hot topics that inspired me for that.

First of all living in the country that made its important step out of safety and community that is called European Union, the place where UK was for many decades. Now we are officially out here and the whole time till now we have two camps Pro and Contra.

Looking back it is amazing and not understandable how this man came to his power, the man who lied the whole time and people blindly believe. The logo on the Election bus:

“We send 350 millions to EU a week, lets fund our NHS instead”

You can imagine that people of course prefer to fund health care system rather to pay EU. But later on he said that he never has seen what was written on the bus.

He wanted to leave EU and not extend Brexit beyond 31 October and said that he “rather be dead in a ditch” but he had to extend the deadline till end of January 20 and of course he is not lying in a ditch.

He promised to recruit 20,000 new police officers from 20 to 21 and 50000 Nurses in NHS.

In meantime we have Coronavirus problem and unlike in other European countries where the government closing schools, nurseries and events. It is open here, what they suggest:

If someone in family noticed cough or Flu like symptoms people should isolate themselves for 2 weeks

  • Elderly over 70 to self-isolate for 3 months
  • The public events are not canceled but he said that government can’t provide policemen and Paramedics for the safety and it is up to the event hosts to run or not.
  • The restaurants, pubs are open but he said people should not visit them. Boris Johnson's own father has today ignored the government's advice on how the British public can avoid coronavirus buy saying he may go to the pub tonight.
  • There is no public test for Coronavirus


As to public NHS hospitals, the elective work is stopped and hospitals all over the country create the words and spaces for possible patients.

The life is very busy up here, nevertheless in order to write about this situation I thought to do this painting, but thought to use Impressionism to do it.

I hope you enjoyed my post and thank you for viewing :-)


Very interesting portrait! Let's keep on Steeming... or Hiving. 🤣

I like just randomly using colors and sometimes it looks more completed than when I spent hours working on straight lines.

I hope that Brexit will work well for UK. @stef1
Pretty depiction of Boris there too, you had painted him well.

We all hope for that but who knows? Thank you for the warm words :)

Very colorful and mean portrait.

I like colors and wanted to show the contrast, thank you for stopping by :)

Good luck to you and your country ! 😊 i'm glad my country (France) decided for the lockdown, I think people have to be given a calm direction to avoid going in all directions and spread fear ...I do not envy countries that have some insane leaders, I'm not a real fan of the gouvernment in France, but I would'nt deny it an interest in the country and the well-being of its inhabitants... 😊


Yes, the isolation in own homes may do its trick, only hopefully it will not last long as human is not used to be locked and usually lone for freedom. I wish you to stay safe and healthy. Thank you for visiting my painting :)

I like the texture you created by applying the paint thickly. Your portraits are improving.
It's quite surreal the world we are living in at the moment. I thought the lockdown would be Friday but I guess we will find out at some point.
