Connections

I’ve not been able to blog for a while – I’ll explain why on the next post, but just to let you know and maybe keep you intrigued until then (cos I’d hate you to get bored!) I’ll then tell you the connections between what I’ve recently learnt about being unnoticed and noticed at the same time, what happens when you watch the watcher, what’s sexual to some and not to others, and how as an erotic artist I found egg cups to be of very great interest! And how a bath created a different slant on erotic art…….

Oh……… and also about a how I was fascinated by a conversation over dinner with an architect and a psychologist…………

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.

    OK so I’m sat here with baited breath too, I didn’t comment when I first saw your post, but thought, this sounds most interesting, and maybe I have been checking in more often than normal.

    But now I have no fingernails, and have fell off the edge of the chair 3 times with excitement. Just like you do when you watch a tense thriller…..

    I’m sure we all want to know… ABOUT THE EGG CUPS!!
