The joys of S & M

Well, I’m ready for it.

I’ve been a long time getting myself ready for this moment. I’ve almost forgotten my promise to do it, its been so long. But, a promise, is a promise.

And I so want to do it.

I’ve been keeping it close to me……………savouring it. This delicious moment. When I take this big step. Into the unknown.

Into S & M.

Or……………more to the point “S” and “M”……..

And for those of you who know what I’m referring to – you know I’m talking about the watercolour painting I promised to do for the newly weds – the one of the French village landscape with the letters “S” and “M” hidden within it. Its been so long since I’ve done a watercolour, I’ve got to think how I’m going to tackle to style of the painting to get the effect I want. But, I shall love looking how I can hide the letters within the painting. So, they’re not easily seen, but can be found by those who know where to look. I love hiding secrets in my work!! And this one is going to be fun!!!!

So, if it looks like its going to have me tied up for a bit…………………………………. 🙂

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.

    Perhaps you could include Max Mosely in this little French village wearing his M&S leather jacket, and I am sure people will get the S&M idea! lol

    Whatever you decide I am sure it will be great and that they will both love it!

    Fitzy – I'm going for a far more subtle approach than that, but thanks for the idea!!!! LOL

    I love looking for secrets that are hidden. I know there's some thing there. Like clouds in the sky, I can usually see the cats head or an animal of some sort. I have the eye to see, some people don't but I do. So you have us dangling with baited breath as to what you will produce and where the hidden secret will lie? I look forward to seeing it in all it's glory Jackie.
