Stepping in the right direction

Now I’ve got the internet back I thought I’d be doing dedicated blogging on an almost daily basis – but instead I find I’ve gone a number of days without turning my hand and head to blogging. But that is mostly the fault of that addictive of communicational things – Facebook. I’m hooked! I love it! It’s great to catch up with friends again, and see what they’re up to, and lovely to hear from them too! I’m back in the world, and I love it!

And I’ve started a drawing, too. Not an erotic one, a townscape. I can’t say I’m hugely excited by it, but the discipline of straight lines, vertical lines, vanishing points, compositions and tonal values through texture and cross-hatching in pen on cartridge paper is absorbing, and will get me back into the mind-set of producing technical art before I start on the fun stuff again – the EROTIC stuff! Far more interesting!!!
As well as that I’ve been working on an updated artist statement – which is basically an article saying who I am, what my art is about, how I produce it and what my motives and inspirations are. Keeping it succinct and interesting is the main thing, so I know it’ll take a bit of fine tuning before I’m happy with it.

I’ve also had the usual batch of interesting conversations this week, with interesting people. Some fleeting aquaintances met in a bar, some more solid in my life. The fleeting aquaintances tend to say things that amuse me. But perhaps that’s because they find me amusing too – for instance the man who playfully slapped my bum as he told me “You’re a VERY naughty girl, aren’t you Jackie!” to which I just grinned and didn’t bother to argue with him. If that is how an Erotic Artist is perceived, then so be it.  Having said that, his girlfriend painted pictures of sheep, so perhaps it was a step too far for him!!!

I’ve also had an indepth conversation with my usual male model who has decided he is mentally and physically ready to pose for me along with one or two female models. This is, I know, a big step for him, and I deeply appreciate that he is happy and trusting of my artistic decisions and professional manner. Now, that is going to be interesting to set up. It’s finding the right female models to pose with him, that’s going to be a little tricky. But, not impossible! And just think of the artwork!!! Mmm….. very tasty!

And I think all of this has reminded me of a  very useful lesson to learn in life –

“Don’t worry, it’s only kinky the first time…………  

Yep, that’s a useful one to learn!!! I’ll tell him, when I see him next…. LOL
