Twinkle twinkle………

After a busy week last week it was good to go to the pub at the weekend. I’ve not been for a couple of weeks so was looking forward to catching up with friends and friendly faces. The minute I walked through the door, I spied a guy and his wife I’ve not seen for ages, and went straight over to them both to say hi and hug them in delight. Its been weeks since I saw them, infact, when I thought back, it was before Christmas, no – it was at Erotica! They’d come down for the day to see me and my stand at Erotica, which I was really delighted about. It was their first time at Erotica, and they’d really enjoyed it. Infact, they had a few bags bulging with interesting shapes, so they obviously had a few things to try out when they got home, if they could wait that long! She most definitely had a twinkle in her eye with all her purchases……. Anyway, I hugged them both in the pub and said how good it was to see them, and asked how they were. He smiled big time, and hugged me back, and nodded at his seated wife. I looked at her, at her smiling face, then my eyes dropped…………….. to her stomach…… and realised………. that she was pregnant! Wow! Congratulations!!!!!!! More hugs to them both! “When’s it due?” I asked. “Mid August” was the reply. I paused momentarily as I did the maths……………. so, that means you got pregnant ……………. in…………. er………… November. “Yes” she grinned. And the penny dropped………….. “You got pregnant because of Erotica!” and by the glint in her eye, and the twinkle in his………….. I think I’m right!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

Mmm…. I wonder what they bought…………………………

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 itÒ€ℒs 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 itÒ€ℒs 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.

    Well now, the question must indeed be just what was contained within those bulging bags! lol Whatever it was it certainly had an impact!!!

    Visit Erotica and have a baby!!! I guess for some that might be all the reason they need to pay a visit, although that little slogan might also scare off a few as well!
