Last weekend, whilst attending a local art exhibition, I was introduced to a woman who’s face seemed vaguely familiar, in that I’m-sure-I-know-you-but-I-can’t-remember-where-from sort of way. She looked at me in the same way too – and after a bit of chatting about the possibility of me doing a drawing or painting of her very picturesque and historical house, it turned out that we both frequent the same pub! Ah, that would explain it!! And I was greatly amused when she said that she’d seen me in the pub and had pointed me out to her friends as “That’s THE artist!” – I love it when people prefix me as an artist with the word THE – it gives it far more depth and credence! It seems that she wants a drawing done of her house because the previous owners (who I know) had one and since she’s only recently moved in there, she wants one too. She’s sure that I drew the original picture that the previous owners had, and I know I didn’t! But, I don’t mind so long as she thinks I did, and I’m THE artist, so she’s asking ME to do one for her. That’s how it should be!
And this week I’ve done a fun painting, something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time – paint a kiss! One of those shiny red lipped puckered kisses, where you get lost in the lips themselves, and what you want to do with them. Oh yesssssssss!!!! Erotic or what!!!!?! So that’s what I’ve done, in acrylic on a block canvas, and it makes me smile every time I look at it. So I must be happy with it, and it must evoke something in me to make me feel happy with its intended content! So although it doesn’t involve a naked woman, or sexual parts, I consider this to be an erotic painting. Verrry Very Erotic. With a capital E! 🙂 Well….. what do you think?
