Almost ready and counting

I’ve spent the last six weeks working towards it. It’s so close, I can almost smell it.

The aroma of…………………………….. sex, money, and good fun! 🙂

Otherwise known as…………………….. EROTICA !!! 

YAY!!!

So I’m just sorting out last minute jobs – printing out price lists, sorting out order forms, framing pictures, and the usual job of chasing up the printers. Do they all work to the “last minute” ? When I want to know well beforehand that I’ve got everything together, and am trying to be well organised. So when I rang them on Thursday to see how my print  printing was going, the guy on the other end of the phone asked me when I wanted it by? “Last Monday!” was my reply, which took him aback. He printed them off last night for me to collect today, only for me to find that some of the stuff hadn’t been printed off at the size I’d specifically asked for – to fit into mounts that I’ve got, so the appature sets the size I need. fortunately, I checked them whilst I was there and the new sizes were done whilst I ………waited…………………

So, that just leaves the last thing. The new thing. The thing that I’ve not done before, but have wanted to do for many years.

The calendars.

They may only be small, they may only be my first ones, but they’re all mine.

But, that leads me to wonder how many I need printing off. Am I going to sell all of them at Erotica? Should I leave some for afterwards? Will I sell them all in the first day and wish I’d ordered five times as many? Although they’re NEXT years calendar I’ll really need to get rid of them all by February because everyone has a calendar by then……………. MMMmmm…………………. How………….many?

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.
