I wasn’t telling the whole truth about the tits and arses

I bumped into an acquaintance the other night. He was playing pool, and the minute he saw me walk past him, he came over to say hi. I got a friendly smile and a kiss on the mouth and the opening line of “How are the tits and arses?” As questions go, you’d think that that was a little, well, presumptuous of him…. but then, I knew he wasn’t referring to MY tits and arses, well ………not exactly mine, but very much mine, in a way!  He meant my erotic artwork. And he knew I knew that’s what he meant. As opening lines go, it was a good one, and one I respond to with a delighted wicked grin! “Fine, thanks” I said. And we chatted about my recent paintings, and his latest artistic endeavours. He never rates his work enough to want to exhibit it, which is a shame, but there’s no point in exhibiting it if you’re not happy to show the world.

I told him that I’d got an exhibition on at Ticknall Village Hall in Derbyshire this weekend, along with a group of thirty artists. And I joked “But, I won’t be showing the tits and arses, I’ll be putting some landscapes in”. He grinned, and said that was a pity and I agreed. We swapped a few more pleasantries and I left him to get on with his game of pool.

But, I was wrong, although I didn’t know it at the time.

Because I have hung some tits and arses.

And as I hung them, I had some very appreciative comments from my fellow artists about them.

So, now it’ll be interesting to see what the viewing public think of them………………

Especially as two of them will be some of the arses I’ve drawn recently!!! LOL

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.
