In someone else’s hands

It’s out of my hands.

And I’m having to accept that. Accept the fact that there’s nothing I can do. At the moment.

Because someone who I’ve never met, and never likely to meet, has made a decision not to buy the house they originally wanted in Watford, it means their vendors aren’t selling their house, and that affects all the houses down the line – including mine. So the chain is broken. Unless someone can do something, somewhere, to mend it. And it looks like it’s the vendor four more down the chain who is the one who may, just, be able to do something about it.

He’s offered to buy the house in Watford.
He doesn’t WANT the house in Watford, but if he buys it, then everyone down the line can move on to their new homes. Including me. But if he is unable to buy it, then we’re all back to square one and starting again.

And just to add to the fun of it all, I’m stuck in a nightmare scenario, not of my making, that means that some farmer somewhere, who I’d never heard of until last week, may hold the crux of my sale, if we can prove whether he does, or does not, own a particular piece of land.

Someone, somewhere, is making a lot of money out of this mess.
And its not me.

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.
