Inspiring others

Just in my short blogging life I’ve seen the birth of a few blogs. Its fun to see, how they burst forth upon the world and develop and evolve into a thing of beauty. I know mine has developed since I first started, and I like the change in it, and the people I’ve met through it – both in real life, and in blogland. And its been good to know that I’ve inspired two other people to start blogging in the first place – blog virgins! – who are both getting a lot out of it, and pleasure from the subjects they write about. The newest of whom is Racy Redhead – an exhibitionist submissive (what an exciting mix that is!) who already has made some exciting posts including some very interesting (to an erotic artist) photographs of herself in some compromising and sexy positions. I can see a lot of inspiration for more erotic drawings coming my way!! She’s also the latest participant of the “Pussy Portraits” collection, and had a lot of fun taking the photos with her cameraman of choice!

So, just to let you know I haven’t forgotten the Pussy Portraits at all – nor the Erotic landscapes which are taking priority over them, as they’re for a deadline, and the others aren’t, as yet. Plus, in the background, I’ve got other things happening which may well take me more into another offshoot of art……………. I’ll tell you about it when I’ve finished setting it up!

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.

    Redheads are truly inspirational, IMO.

    RR, best of luck. I like to think all the female bloggers that I read were my nurturers. They do seem like proud mommies watching us neophytes take our first wobbly steps in blogging.

    Thank you, Jackie & Vi.
