Erotic art auction coming up

Next week I’m entering ten drawings into an Erotic Art Auction through the Guild of Erotic Artists and that’s got me thinking – I thought maybe this blog might be the place to give you a chance to bid for some of my artwork too – what do you think?

I’ll feature a piece of artwork (or maybe two or three) and up to a particular date to be set, I’ll accept “sealed bids” by email from anyone who is interested in buying. If the bids don’t reach the reserve price, then the artwork will not be sold. If the bids do reach the reserve price, then the highest one gets the artwork and once I have received payment by Paypal I will send the piece of artwork on to you, in whichever country you are in, and will pay the postage costs myself.

So, anyone interested in that as a concept?

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.

    Jackie, I think the idea is wonderful. My current financial situation would prohibt my bidding but hopefully that won’t be a forever situation.

    Trixie – That’s ok, so long as we know its a good idea! If there’s a lot of interest I may do it on a regular basis, and you may find something you like, and want to bid for, at some point.

    Nitebyrd – Delighted that you like the idea, and as I’ve said to Trixie, I may do it on a regular basis if the idea takes off. And you may find something you like when you’re in a more favourable position to buy it…

    As pretty much every one has said~ great idea, pity about the credit crunch though… having said that- it’s amazing what people can afford when we have no money.. I unfortunately won’t be bidding, my purse is empty, honest, I’ve searched even the lining in my purse and down the back of the sofa..;-( good luck Jackie… oh I’ll miss the fun..

    Indigo – Well, as I’ve said to the others, I might carry it on and you may find something you like in the future. And you may get some unexpected money from somewhere, you may win the lottery, who knows! 🙂

    Jackie if I could win the lottery I’d most definately bid… buy a bigger bike, travel, dye my hair aqua blue, buy a donkey sanctuary or some thing to do with animals… Have another tattoo and marry my girlfriend.. We can but hope!!
