Suprise turn

Chatting with a friend in the pub last night, he told me again that he wanted to pose for me. He’d told me this last week too, but I thought it was the late night beer talking. He’s never posed for an artist before and is both thrilled and scared at the same time (always a potent mix for erotica!!). He said that his life is mundane, and the chance of me drawing him lifts his life out of the mundane. I was touched and appreciated his candour, and obvious delight at our forthcoming painting session. He says he’ll be guided by me, for what pose I’ll put him in, and is perfectly happy for me to publish the end result on my website and blog. That’s nice, that he puts so much trust in me, and will be happy with the outcome, before even seeing it (although he’s viewed my erotic art on my website and is impressed with it, so he knows how I paint). I’m looking forward to doing it with him. There aren’t many jobs in the world, where people are happy to take their clothes off for you! There’s something of the extrovert in people who can do it. I’m happy to give them the chance.

I’m wondering this week why most of my recent interesting and in-depth erotic conversations are with straight guys and bi-sexual women. There must be a reason for this. Is it that straight women just don’t talk about erotica – with me at least – or is it that only straight men and bi women are interested and open about it?

Now, I’ve got to get some landscapes painted – how vanilla! – and not half as interesting as erotic art.

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.

    I think the explanation is quite simple. Heterosexual men and bi-sexual women will enjoy the sexual frisson of being naked with a female erotic artist who clearly has an interest in sexual matters. Straight women don’t have that desire.

    Horneymaleuk is right to a degree. I personally do not wish to discuss my very personal thoughts of an erotic nature with anyone except ‘special’ friends of the opposite sex who i may decide to get more ‘friendly’ with.
    The thought of discussing my innermost feelings of a sexual nature with (dont take this the wrong way) any Tom, Dick or Harriet would make me feel extremely vulnerable. Perhaps this is because i have been the victim of someone who ‘mis-read’ me when i was younger, but i purposefully try to mask anything that can be portrayed as inviting someone to view me sexually, probably as a form of defence. I would not find it easy to switch modes even if i was assured i would be anonymous.I would doubt all other straight women are the same and they may just need a bit of prodding (so to speak)to encourage discussion (hence the popularity of chatrooms).
