Almost there with the goddesses painting

I’m almost there, and yet……….
I’m hesitating……………..
Why am I hesitating?
Because I don’t want to spoil it.
I want it to be ……right
I want it to be special.
I keep looking at it
to double check it’s alright
and it is,
in places
But I need to look again
to see what else needs to be done
The thinking is part of the process
And I can see that parts of it are SOOO right
It’s just that I need to look at the bits
that aren’t
yet,
And change them!
Or at least,
enhance them
improve on them
and get them to match the rest
Easy!
So, I’d better get on with it then!!!! 🙂

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.

    hi honey…i so know how you feel. sometimes I'm like that…what you need to watch out for is to not over think and over do it. Sometimes the best work is the first one…

    later sweetie. xx

    Spiky – Mmm…. yes, I think you're right regarding "over thinking it". I work better when I go with the flow, its just that I like to ponder the work ahead, and then get on with it after that thinking period. But you're certainly right regarding the best work being the first one – I try to keep the momentum of the initial one, its the perfection of the creative spirit!
