Random facts (Number 2)

Well this Amazing Blogger award has come around another time, so thank you Indigo for nominating me again! Right then seven more random facts about me – ok they are:

1. I arrived in Buenos Aires the day the Argentinians were celebrating the Falklands War.

2. I was treated like a movie star in Shanghai.

3. I’ve seen the lights come on all over New York.

4. I’ve been on the Orient Express over the Andes.

5. I’ve seen the surreal landscape of New Zealand where the earth boils in poisons and water is hot enough to melt metal.

6. I’ve been to the Rugby Sevens in Hong Kong.

7. I was kidnapped in Bankok.

And now I have to nominate three others to pass this on – ok then,

I nominate Vi cos she radiates passion about what she believes in, and writes an amazingly entertaining blog about her life in Blah.

I nominate Luka cos she has the most glorious dry wit which never fails to amuse me with its clever insight

I nominate Bittersweet Me who writes so eloquently, sensitively and poignantly about her life and lovers.

Over to you girls…….

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.
