Whose fanny is THAT?

Its not often that I talk about actual sales of paintings, I talk about painting them, I talk about commissions, and I talk about exhibitions. And whereas I love painting, I also love selling my work too. And, is often the way with art and being an artist, you never actually know where a sale is going to come from, or when, or how or who with. And there can be large gaps in between, and then, there is what I refer to as the “batch theory” – in that there will be a batch of nothing happening, followed by a batch of lots of things happening altogether. This has indeed been the case recently – Sweat shop sissy wanted to commission a fanny painting, that became Queynte 14, but as well as that someone else wanted to buy her Queynte – I’m not going to say who it is, or which number Queynte it is, as the whCheck Spellingole point of them is their anonymity. So, it was the case that I found myself wrapping two Queyntes this week to be posted off to their respective buyers. And that made me VERY VERY wary. Because………… I am careful to keep a note of who has contacted me to say they want their fanny painting, and then some of them will send me photos (some still haven’t done yet – but are planning on doing at some point), some of the Queyntes have been painted and some haven’t yet, and some of the women who have participated I only know by their blogger name, not their real name, but some I know by their real name too! So, whilst checking on the Queyntes in question that I’m posting out this week, I knew which one belonged to Sweat shop sissy, because I’ve only finished it this week, but the other one, I double checked and checked again, that the name of the real person who had contacted me matched the blogger name that matched the Queynte number before I wrapped it. Because I don’t write the name of the person on the back of the painting, only the number. And I made DAMN sure that I DIDN’T wrap the two Queyntes together, then write the addresses on them – as one was going to Canada, and the other to an address in this country, as…………….can you imagine it……………picture the scene………………….. Two women……..in totally separate countries……………….divided by a large Atlantic ocean…………….arrive home……………. to find the post man has been…………………… has delivered the exciting artwork that they’ve been waiting for……………. as they smile to themselves………………… and reach for a pair of scissors…………………. as they cut open the paper………………… as they open the package…………….. as they reveal…………….. the painting……………and hold it up infront of them………… and look at it for a long minute……………………………… before saying……………………………. WHO THE FUCKS FANNY IS THAT??? COS IT SURE AS HELL ISN’T MINNNNNNNNNE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OOOHHH…. NO. I can’t have that happening, can I ??????????????????!!!!!!!!!! LMAO

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.

    I can certainly see how sending the wrong painting to the wrong person would cause a huge problem, as well as some potential embarrassment for all concerned!

    Having said that though, in a few years time it would be another funny story for you to share with people, even if it would be at your expense this time.

    Mmm…. I wrote it now as a funny story of mistaken identity, but I strive to make sure it’s one that never happens!
